I create my PDF's using Word and that is my "source" version of the document.

I need to enable the PDF user to click a link on the PDF and jump to the next spot on that same PDF. How do I do this?

Does this mean I should add a Bookmarks to each destination in thePDF?

And, is there a "Back" button, to enable the PDF user to easily drop back to the prior spot? If so, how do I make that work?

Thanks

Thanks. Do the features I would add to Word translate to the PDF? I need to maintain my Word file as my source document and the PDF output as the target document.

Thanks.

You add a table of contents and set the sections to headings. The ToC will automatically generate and will provide the navigation when saved as PDF
