Saving Word Doc as PDF with Bookmarks

Occasional Visitor

How can I save a Word document as a PDF but include Bookmarks.  I can save it as a PDF, and I can set up Bookmarks in Word, but I can't get the Bookmarks in the PDF version.

In a PDF, "bookmarks" usually refer to links to headings listed in a separate pane. In Word, if you have been using the built-in heading styles consistently, you can choose to create such "bookmarks" when you save your Word document as PDF. Use the PDF Options and choose to create PDF bookmarks based on headings.
