There have been several responses to my original post. Here is my take-away summary:
As I stated in the original post, Save-As PDF works perfectly for me as long as all pages are same size. Books with dozens of bookmarks and thousands of links come out just fine. BTW, I am using MicroType TimeSavers to manage special bookmarks. Like David Artman, who responded that he would never use Save-As PDF, I too avoided it entirely until very recently when Shlomo Perets encouraged me to use it in response to another post. My prior reluctance went back to Dov Isaacs' posts several FM releases ago when, as an Adobe respondent, he said that the Save-As function had significant issues. I tested the suggestion from Craig Ede (put a tabloid page first) with the result that all pages in the PDF were tabloid. Fred Ridder suggested making changes in the print window via a possible selection that detected page size automatically. This is, in fact, the result I get by default if I do a print to .ps, i.e., the PDF virtual printer or Distiller DOES detect page size automatically. That is the process I've been using from the beginning. I don't know how to make this happen with the Save-As method, which is why I posted today. Only a few of the 30-some print books I use to publish an 8,000 page document have tabloid pages. Barring some further response that provides a workable methodology, I will continue to publish those books that have mixed-size pages in the traditional print to .ps + Distiller as I had been doing exclusively until quite recently. Why continue to use the Save-As method? Why not just keep the process I've always had? Well, for one thing, when I have to produce the entire document (over 30 books), it is much faster and simpler to use the Save-As PDF. As always, thanks to those who have responded. If I discover a solution to the original issue, I will post an update.

How does one configure FM to do Save-As PDF with the correct output page sizes (e.g., book with mixed letter/tabloid pages) in PDF? This is not a problem if a book print setup is set to tabloid and printed to .ps then distilled; the output reflects the original page sizes. With Save-As, if the page size is set to tabloid, all the pages in the output will be tabloid. I can get only one size or the other.
