Structured PDFs From Microsoft Word

John C. Welch:

Well, with Acrobat XI, there’s FINALLY an improvement there. The feature is back, and the PDFs created from it are so much better than what they were. Best of all, you can do the conversion via drag and drop. Drag a Word file onto Acrobat and a few seconds later, you have a PDF that is a pretty damned good representation of the document. You do have to have Office 2008 or 2011 on your system, because Acrobat XI is using AppleScript for this. (I know, I know, it is a shock. Do sit down for a minute if you need to.)

This was previously only possible with the Windows version of Acrobat.
