Hi Gerald,

I received only one reply that suggested I had copyrighted fonts that
wouldn?t convert, and I don?t. I?m sure that there is a setting that will
allow links to migrate to the PDF, but I can?t find it. All the links in the
PDF now link through the Word source document. So whenever I click a link in
the PDF, Acrobat tries to open the Word Source document in order to execute
the link. I still have no way to convert Word docs to PDF and preserve the
links. I will have to go to every single link in the PDF and redo them with
the link tool, and I have over 1,000 links in this manual. There was a
similar post after mine, with no replies, titled **Word 2003 to PDF WITH
active links.**

Thanks for the reply!
Kirk Turner
