As others have said, if you want bookmakrs, links, etc, you need to use the
Acrobat menu from Word.

However, you should still be able to use Distiller on PRN files as long as
the printer that you originally chose generates post script code. If you
like your print files to have a .PS extension (like I do), put quotes around
the file name when you enter it in the dialog box - Word should NOT add .PRN
if the quotes exist.

Word file. The method I'm used to using (in FrameMaker) is this:

* Create a PostScript file (a *.ps file).
* Create a PDF from the .ps file.
