Print => Save as PDF??

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 docs.
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?
