    Probably a stupid question, but I've created a document and want to convert it into a PDF, yet wish for there to be chapters in there, so that it can be easily navigated in Preview or Acrobat Reader. How can I go about doing this?

    Not 100% on this, but I don't think that Word supports this. As far as I know, all you can do is print your Word document to PDF format. I think that bookmarks are something Acrobat adds later (ie you add it later with Acrobat Full...not Reader). The only suggestion I have would be to look around for a program that can add chapters, etc. to PDF files. You might check out LaTeX as I believe it can export to PDF, but, again, not sure if it supports bookmarks. A good tutorial on LaTex is available at
