options I'm using for pdf creation in office 2010When I take and save a word document to pdf. the links work fine as long as the files are in the same directory (so it appears).
If i take and save the pdf and move it to another directory on our server then it can not find the file because it seems to be putting file:///subdirectory/filename.pdf for the links
where it should be putting the true path of file:/f/corpdocs/myfile.pdf

here are the settings I am trying:

Microsoft have this useful article on absolute and relative links that sheds some light on the behaviour, and provides solutions.
