In Adobe acrobat 8 there was an option in the word add-on called "fully functional PDF", that doesn't seem to appear in the word add-on for Acrobat 9. Google foo doesn't seem to be helping me find the equivalent option. Anyone know where I can find the equivalent option in Acrobat 9?

I would say that any PDF that's generated by the PDFMaker in MS Office products is fully functional :)

Here is the information from the Acrobat 8 online documentation about this setting:

=====================
Word 2007-specific options on the Settings tab

The following options appear when you open the PDFMaker settings from within Microsoft Word 2007.

Fully Functional PDF creates a fully functional, high-quality, and compact PDF file.
Quick And Simple PDF Creates a basic PDF file for viewing. The Bookmark and Word tab settings are not available for quick and simple PDFs.
======================
So the difference between the two options are that one creates a PDF file that is only intended to be viewed, no special features like bookmarks are added to that file. The fully functional file gets all the bells and whistles. As far as I know, this is no longer in A9 and later, you now have to decide if you want bookmarks, tagging, headers and footers, ...
