ConvertNumbersToText vs Page and Section Breaks (all)
I've had code running for a while that uses
to get around the problem that Acrobat 5 and 6 (but not 7) ignores the automatic numbers on paragraphs it turns into bookmarks.
Little did I know that if your paragraph starts with a page break or section break, i.e.
2. -> Something Somethinig
It gets changed by the above code to
And it's worse with Section Breaks -- you get two numbers: one before the section break, one where you meant to have it!
I try to get people to use the Page Break Before attribute on the paragraph, but they seem to like that evil page break. And sometimes, you just have to use a section break.
My code is now going to have to sneak through the document, find page breaks and section breaks in numbered paragraphs, drop in a hidden paragraph mark after the break, and change the style to something not numbered. Bleah.
Thanks for letting me vent,
