Hi All:

I'm passing on the following information from Lisa
McG------- in case others of you have similar problems.

Original Problem

So, here's the problem: ...
I created optimized and non-optimized versions of the pdf
this afternoon, as well as versions with and without security
and put them in different folders to go on the same cdrom.

I found that when testing the Search function in Acrobat to
see if it worked in each pdf after building each index, every
time I would open a different pdf version, Acrobat remembered
the index path of the last index I accessed and added it to
the list of index path choices for the user to access when
Searching. It seemed impossible to get it to stop doing
that even though you can unselect ("remove") an index, but
then the next one you open is going to have the same problem.
.. I only want each pdf to access the index that is in its
own folder, as I originally built the index and set up the
pdf to link to. But it seems that Acrobat remembers previous
index paths each time you open up another copy.

We found that what appears to be the solution is to remember to rename
index something other than the default, which is index.pdx. So I named
most recent one TNSindex.pdx and I named the index folder TNSindex. I
it close to the root so that the full name of the path wouldn't be too
characters and I trimeed the name to DOS eight-digit.three-digit format.
Previously the name had been TNSCCindex.pdx, so I had to trim it. It
fine after this. I think the previous problem was that different pdfs
reading the same index.pdx path so naming them all something different
helps. If you think this would help the list, feel free to post
