Hello, TechWR-L-ers,

Well, although the usual problem with Word-to-PDF conversion is a lack of bookmarks, my problem is the opposite: I seem to be able to get either all headings in the bookmarks or none. I canât get just the heading 1 and 2 levels into the bookmarks.

Any ideas what I might have wrong in my styles? (As I said, I doubt that the problem is in my Acrobat Preferences because I get the same behavior on two different systems.)


More info:

Iâve never had this happen, and itâs not system/machine-related. The same Word file produces the same PDF result on two different machines.

Both have Word 2007; one has Acrobat Pro 9 Extended as part of the Tech Comm Suite, the other has Acrobat 9 Pro as a standalone program. Both Word installs show the expected Acrobat tab in the ribbon, and both machines seem to invoke the PDFMaker.

The styles should be solid â I started with a template that Iâve used many times before. And then I created new heading styles, based on Heading 1. And I get the same PDF result whether I use the original Heading 1 or my new heading styles.

All the heading styles seem fine with respect to their Level settings (Level 1 for Heading 1, Level 2 for Heading 2, etc.)

Thanks much!
