Acrobat Bookmarks Error When Created In Word

Hey gang,

I've got a weird problem that's driving me to distraction. I have a set of Microsoft Word documents that need to be converted to PDF for our customer. Each document has a TOC, list of figures, and list of tables that are saved as bookmarks. No problem so far, right?  All of these bookmarks work...except for the last bookmark created. When the TOC and list of figures are created, the last bookmark in the LOF turns into a hyperlink instead of a bookmark, which I then have to edit so it becomes a proper bookmark. All of the other bookmarks are A-OK.

TL;DR: The last bookmark created in the PDF is a hyperlink pointing to a temp file instead of the referenced page. (See the pic below.)

This is what it looks like:

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi @STL Orca  The first thing is examine the text in Microsoft Word. As this is a list of figures, start with the text in the body of the document. Select the paragraph, remove the hyperlink if one exists, clear all formatting using the Ribbon, then reassign the Paragraph style you used for the others in the list. Finally, regenerate the LoF and see if it happens again. ~ Jane

Hello Jane,

Thanks for the reply. I followed your steps and at first it didn't work. Finally, I got it to work by deleting and recreating the caption entirely. Thanks for your help.
