Thanks Brian for the reply!
I tried Theta software a few months ago and the problem with that
software is that it doesn't handle the drop-down and expanding texts
If my memory serves me right, only the titles of the drop-down/expanding
texts appeared in the PDF.

I have had this problem as well... my solution was not to create pdf's
out of RH X5. I know that is not a lot of help, but honestly this
feature is in it's first stage. This is MM/eHelp's first attempt at
pdf'ing out of single source this way.
It is still rusty and I have had conversations with them about it and
they know it is. What I do is I create chm of my work. I then use a
utility called chmtopdf. The website is www.thetasoftware.com, and this
utility creates a pdf out of your chm file. My company loves the output.
It works, it's clean and it gets the job done. The best part is the
application is only about 50.00.
So it was a no brainer to us.
I hope some of this helps, just my 2 cents.
