I had one of those blinding flashes of the obvious a few days ago when I realized that Acrobat 9 Pro had installed a ribbon in Word 2007 (Excel and PowerPoint as well). For years, I have been using the old standby method of File, Print, then select Adobe PDF as my printer, which has changed only slightly in Word 2007 with the advent of the Office button.
Once I tried Create PDF from the ribbon, I realized I had been missing out on a great tool. The Create PDF button on the ribbon creates a PDF that honors many parts of the Word 2007 document including headings and hyperlinks. Selecting File, Print on the other hand, simply creates a static PDF with hyperlinks that do not work.
I might be the only one who didn’t realize this but, just in case, I thought I would share this with everyone.acrobat, acrobat 9, microsoft office, word 2007
