Hi Everyone!

I've got a problem with Acrobat that I'm hoping someone out there has also
seen and solved.

I'm using Word 2000/PDFMaker to create an Acrobat File for a 138-page
document. The document is built as a master with 13 subdocuments. It has
a Table of Contents and Bookmarks made from Word Headings and one Styles.
The bookmarks are displayed in the side panel.

The first time I tried to create the .pdf, I used Acrobat 4. The Table of
Contents links (created automatically in Word) didn't work, but the Acrobat
Bookmarks in the side panel did. I upgraded to Acrobat 5, hoping that
would solve the problem. Now all the links sort of work. But they take you
to the BOTTOM of the first page of the appropriate section. You have to
scroll up to see the title at the top of the page.

It's a little flaky. On one attempt, Acrobat 5 seemed to drop all the
screen captures!

Can Acrobat handle Words' master/subdoc structure? Is there a compile
option I'm not using correctly? Does anyone out there have any ideas for

I've spent a couple of days troubleshooting this, without results. I'm
stuck and thinking that maybe I should abandon the master/subdocuments idea.
Of course, I'd rather not. So any thoughts would be much appreciated.

I'm on the digest.

Many Thanks,
