I have seen this error in a PDF converted from Word, but the problem was
a printing one, not a link or display one.

Anyway, just in case it fires off some ideas ...

We found the problem with a large text box in the document that went
over the edge of the page. The original users had put in text boxes to
get text running up the side, and had stretched it too large. This works
in Word but the error did not appear until we tried to print the PDF.

Get back to the original Word document if you can and turn on all text
markers. Then delete or re-size any problem text boxes. The re-create
the PDF.

Hope this helps.

Has anyone else experienced this error? I've opened a PDF that has
several links to other PDFs. Every so often, when I try to click on a
link from the main PDF, I receive this Out of Bounds error. Any clues?
BTW, someone else has created the main PDF from a Word document. I've
tried good 'ol Google, but did not come up with any clear solutions.
Thanks for any insight.
