Just my two eurocents here :-)
Although you can use the PDFMaker Word add-in to automatically create TOC
bookmarks and in-document hyperlinks, there is an upper limit (50 bookmarks
in the version that I have). I did find some instructions on increasing
this, but I couldn't get it to work effectively on 300-page-plus manuals. I
gave up when the document took over two hours to generate, and I still
didn't have enough 'headroom' for the number of required hyperlinks and
bookmarks. FWIW, the function of time/number of booksmarks seems to be
I understand that Frame will create the bookmarks/hyperlinks 'out of the
box'. However, no guarantees because I haven't used Frame in a long time,
and I've never used Frame to produce PDFs.
