Acrobat offers plenty of potential for automation via OLE and DDE. In addition, many powerful Acrobat navigation features such as bookmarks, hyperlinks, notes and document information can be added to PostScript files before distilling using pdfmark.

Before pdfmaker our WordMark product was widely used for converting Microsoft Word documents to 'intelligent' PDF. Although no longer sold as a product, the technology that we developed for the product is widely used by ourselves and our clients for automated conversion of Word documents and other pdfmark creation tasks.

For an introduction to the possibilities of pdfmaker you should purchase a copy of our Automating Acrobat eBook. In addition, this publication introduces OLE automation in the context of Acrobat Distiller.
