Poor conversion from Word 2013

Acrobat XI does not correctly convert my file that has shapes with links to bookmarks using pdfmaker.

Links do not work and/or seem to be misplaced in pdf.

Worked fine in Word 2010.


How can I solve this?

    Try it again after making the Adobe PDF printer the default printer.

    The suggestion was not that you make the PDF by printing to the default printer, but only that you set it as the default printer THEN use PDFMaker.


    I have no idea whether it would fix this but it certainly improves things for some people. Word changes layout when you change printer driver, so using the final driver can reduce layout changes in PDF creation for some people.

    Hey ... Roger ...


    Did you happen to figure this Word 2013 with Shapes problem out?  I'm having the same grief.

    Did you update AA XI? For use with OFFICE 2013, you need the updates.
