I recently updated from Word 2003/Adobe 8 Professional to Word 2010/Adobe X Professional. My Word doc has style that automatically creates upper case headings; when pdf creates the bookmark it is upper and lower case. How do I keep Word formatting? My bookmark needs to be identical to table of contents (some headings are all upper case). I did not have trouble with Word 2003/Adobe 8 but do not find any setting in Adobe X to keep Word formatting. Any information would be appreciated,
Thank you for your response. I have one of my documents (in .doc and .pdf) ready to attach but do not know the procedure. Please send me a few more instructions on how to attach.
Will document be available for all to see or only you?

While your Word Style results in an uppercase presentation of characters if you keyed any characters as lower case that is what is "real".
Thus, the lower case characters are present in the PDF Bookmarks.
The "fix" is to ensure caplock is on when entering the characters.
Regarding attached files. Forum users cannot attach files to posts.
("admins"/"mods" can do this)
If you have Sandeep V's email you can attach them to an email to him.
The forum support PMs between members. Send Sandeep one asking for his email.
Alternatively open an account at acrobat.com (free) (or some other, similar online service) and upload the files there.
Then Share / Publish and place the link in a post to this thread.
Note that this would make the files publically available.
oh okay! now I understand that. my apologies.
Karen- I agree with CtDave. Word Styles are just representation of the original data. PDFMaker always takes the format of the raw data. In Word, bookmarks can be Word Arts or other Word styles but Acrobat will not be able to show those styles under bookmarks. So, it always takes the raw format of that data.
Even if you type text in lowercase and convert that to uppercase using Font Formatting dialog box-> All caps, Acrobat will still display the text in lowercase. Because the raw text is in lowercase and we just modified the front face of it.
I think the only solution to this issue is what CtDave has already suggested. Thanks CtDave.
Feel free to post back if you need more info on this.
I understand Word is formatting to all caps, no matter how it was typed. I am using templates created by other companies and have no control over their template. My co-worker still has Word 2003/Adobe 8 Professional. When pdf created on that computer from same Word document, the level 1 bookmarks come in all upper case....why?
I'm sure you want to try this -
Didn't realize it in the first place. my bad...
