I have the full Acrobat program (rather than a plug-in) and I use the create
PDF option in the ribbon. (Using Word 2010 and Acrobat Pro XI.)
Good call, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
Unfortunately I'm linking to someone else's (NSW Legislation) site, so have no
control over the file paths.

I've also had this as an issue in the past. Did you generate the PDF via
Acrobat or did you print to PDF? I believe the issue is sometimes (but not
always!) fixed by using the Acrobat ribbon "Create PDF" button. You could
always rename the path/file to remove the #?

I have a minor but annoying problem with hyperlinks in PDFs generated from Word
If the hyperlink contains a hash character (#), the hash is converted to '%23'
- presumably the ASCII code for a hash character - during the PDF generation
process. The link in the finished PDF is broken.
It's relatively easy to post-edit the PDF but it would be good to stop it
happening in the first place.
Does anyone know of a fix for this?
