In case you missed it last week (or was it the week before last?), there was a thread about how there is still a problem with the Save As PDF function that might be an issue for you.
The upshot of the discussion (as confirmed by a couple of list members) is that unless the filename you use for the PDF matches the name of the book file, some of the hypertext links within the document (cross-references, TOC entries, etc.) will be broken. And the same thing will happen if you change the name of the PDF file after you create it. Apparently, when you use Save As PDF, some named destinations have names that include the name of the book file rather than just a destination ID. The print-to-PostScript-then-distill method, on the other hand, works fine and does not create destination names that include the filename. So if you use hyperlinks in your PDFs, it may be a moot point that Distiller doesn't close after you use Save As PDF because you shouldn't use that method to create your PDFs. My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Since then, when I save as PDF, Distiller doesn't automatically close when the PDF is complete (as it used to in Frame 7.0). Before I upgraded to 7.2 I uninstalled FrameMaker 7.0 but left Acrobat Professional (v7.0.5) alone. During the FrameMaker 7.2 installation I declined to install Distiller. Now that I think of it, the change in behavior may have happened with the 7.2 upgrade (I installed the upgrade on November 29 and didn't create a lot of PDFs in the intervening week). At any rate, does anyone know of a preferences setting that will close Distiller when it is finished? For now I've set Distiller and my Adobe PDF printer to show me the result in Acrobat when complete, so I at least know when the job is finished. But I still have to close Distiller manually and I'd rather have that happen automatically. I'm on digest, so copy me directly if appropriate. Otherwise I'll read your responses Monday morning. Thanks for any help you can give me.
