Dear Techwr-l-ers,

I have a 300 page Word 2003 document with many cross-references, bookmarks,
and hyperlinks. The file is converted to PDF and distributed both on paper
and on a CD. I'm trying to figure out if I could use tracking in Word when
updating the document. I turned on tracking, made some changes, accepted the
changes, turned off tracking, converted to PDF using PDFMaker in Acrobat 7.
My cross-references (example: for more information, see page 123) are no
longer jumps and the pages in the TOC are no longer jumps.

I have failed using a variety of parameters under Change Conversion
Settings. The tracking feature in Word seems to be killing the jump feature
in the PDF.

This is a Windows XP OS if that makes a difference.

Has anyone had success with this? Would you kindly give me some pointers?
