Hello Rob, Nice work!
I've been looking for it for a while, to se how came out. If I should have done it, I would have used QuarkXPress, which has an automatic Index-generator, based on the typographic styles of the different headlines. On export to Destiller this index will be transformed to bookmarks in the final PDF. Also this would give me full control over compression of highres pictures in the destiller settings, and cosequently control the final file size.
But you seem to be mastering most of the Acrobat features already.
Did you find any special PDF-features in Word-X? Or did you just do a save preview from Word?

Bo Winding

The Guidebook is not a great testament to utilizing the full powers of Word :-). The headlines and sub-headlines actually aren't in any style; they're just text formatted and then I copied/pasted when I needed a new one. I know, I know ... a horrendous thing to do because it makes things such as TOC impossible to do ;-).

So in the end, it's just a straight Word print to PDF, then I spent about 10 minutes with each version in Acrobat adding the links (that was impressively slick!) and the bookmarks.

I ended up not getting a chance to check out the Appleworks stuff last night, hopefully tonight...

but I did read something about a week ago in the newest MacWorld, that had tips for creating pdf's, one of which, was a tip to use EPS graphics instead of TIFF (or possibly other formats) it results in good looking print, and you can zoom in as far as you want onscreen, and it looks decent. (and I believe should result in smaller pdf files)

this may end up being difficult to impliment, but is something to keep in mind.
