Hm, shame on MS ;-) Shoved MS Office off my hard drive years ago to exchange it for open office ( and one of the reasons : PDF creation.

you just can't beat it.


I just discovered this problem. Is there any other way to create PDF bookmarks from a Word 2010 document?

David Mankin

Mike - since the bookmarks are a direct translation from the Word document's styles to PDF tags, and ONLY the PDF maker exports those styles to PDF tags, you'll have to wait for Acrobat 10 to have this issue addressed, sadly.

Just figured out a work-around in Office 2010. My installation of Adobe 8 Pro added Adobe PDF as a printer. When I need to create a PDF, I just select Adobe PDF as my printer.


Tried the last approach (selecting Adobe PDF as the printer in Word 2010) and it just causes Word to crash. Anyone else having this problem?


I am using Adobe Acrobat 8.0 professional (updated to 8.2.5) and I have been using the Adobe PDF printer approach. That works. But, I miss my shortcut. Who to blame? Microsoft or Adobe?


I just visited the Adobe Acrobat X (or 10, I guess) website. In a comparison chart, only Adobe Acrobat X has the ability to convert docs easily from Office 2010. I guess they're forcing us to upgrade!

Text from Adobe website: "Convert Microsoft Office 2010 files from Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Access to PDF with a single click", it shows Acrobat 7, 8, 9 and X and only Acrobat X has the ability to do this.

Be careful with Acrobat X as it's NOT compatible with Office 2010 64-bit or Internet Explorer 64-bit. I updated to Acrobat X to find out I was still out of luck and had to downgrade to Office 2010 32-bit to make it work as it should.

Bob Patton

I have Acrobat X and the 64 bit Office 2010. I don't even have the Acrobat Tab on the ribbon. How do I downgrade to the 32 bit version? I'm 77 yrs. old and not any too computer literate.

Bob Patton

I guess I need to downgrade to the 32-bit version of Word, but, I'm not sure I know how to do it.
