    Word-Acrobat interface (2000 SR-1)

    When I click on File on the menu bar, the drop down list contains 17 references to "Create Adobe PDF..." -- I have Adobe Acrobat 4.0 on my system -- but, how did I get 17 instances on the WORD 2000 menu????
    And, more important, how can I get rid of 16 of them????????????

    Dianne,

    You could zap them via Tools, Customize, Menus, but ...

    They presumably appear because Acrobat installed a template containing (among other things) the menu items. There's just a possibility that multiple copies are installed. Check this via File, Templates and Add-Ins.

    The template should be stored in your Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeStartup folder. I've had Adobe replicate it's pdfmaker.dot in this folder before, causing more than one Create Adobe PDF menu items. I just deleted the extra ones, but they did come back periodically. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    It's a known bug/"feature" in the Acrobat macros.

    Actually, I'm jealous, I only have 4 of them in the menu!

    The safe way to get rid of them may be:

    1. Uninstall Acrobat.
    2. Manually eliminate the entries in Word.
    3. Re-install Acrobat.

    Or, you might be able to delete the items, likely Acrobat will create, at least 1 anew, when Word next starts,
