I have word 2010 and acrobat X pro.  I have a word document that has link in them to other documents. When I click file>print>PDF , it will convert the document but the links are gone.  Is this by design or am I missing a step somewhere?

    I have not worked on X with 2010 but on 9 with 2007 you have an Acrobat menu item, from that you 'Create PDF' and then all the links remain intact.
