Hi Irulan,

There would be an Acrobat Icon on yout Word Toolbar which converts the Doc
to PDF.

1. Click on it

2. A Screen titled "Adobe PDF Maker" is displayed with four tabs. Namely :
General, Output, Bookmarks and Display Options.

3. Select the Bookmarks Tab.

4. In the Structure & Bookmarks, Include "Word Styles" and Select all
Elements by clicking under the "Bookmarks" heading in the checkboxes (Has to
be done individually for each element, in Acrobat 5.0 however, all elements
are selected automatically on including "Word Styles").

5. Click on "Apply".

6. Convert the doc to pdf and lo !!

Can anyone help me with the following problem?

I'm trying to convert from Word to PDF, and I can't get any bookmarks to
up. I checked the previous threads on this topic and noticed that several
people have said to go to Acrobat > Change Conversion Settings to tell
Acrobat which tags to use for bookmarks. Unfortunately, I don't have an
Acrobat menu or toolbar in Word. It sounds like people are saying it's
supposed to be there. Looking at the menu in Distiller has also been
nonproductive. Can anyone help? I'm working with Word 2000 and Acrobat 4 on
Windows 98.
