Hello, techwr-l-ers,

I now have two clients who want me to work in Word (instead of FrameMaker), so I have to. But manually setting the PDF page numbering (for example, when the preface is in Roman numerals but the rest of the doc in Arabic numerals), default view properties, and bookmark collapse levels every time I create a PDF is driving me batty. Plus I know I'll forget something at some point.

So, does anyone know of a Word equivalent (for both 2003 and 2007 -- yes, the two clients want different versions) for the Microtype TimeSavers program that is so excellent for FrameMaker docs?

I did do a surf, and found one possibility, but it seems to work on its own, not *with* Acrobat: DocSmartz PDF Creator (,
