no, I cannot answer your question, but I hope I'm not insulting you by
suggesting that you do a simple Explorer search for *.pdf? - that will
locate the file (all pdfs) on your box, just in case Acrobat stuck it
somewhere ... anyway, that's the first thing I would do. If it ain;t on your
machine, it was created (for SOME reason :-)

Does anybody know why this problem would happen?

I'm creating a .pdf document from a Word manual by using the Acrobat
"Convert to Adobe PDF" icon. When the conversion is complete, I can't find
the .pdf anywhere. It's not where I saved it. And I've done a search on my
system and can't find it elsewhere either.

Any ideas? The manual is 266 pages. Has it just gotten too large for this
conversion process?

By the way, I use this method of pdf conversion because it creates bookmarks
and links. If anyone has another solution, I'd like to hear about that too.
