The links all look right when the tooltip pops up. I checked that the Create Named Destinations option was turned on (thanks, Tammy), and it was. I tried rebooting, too, (thanks Fred). Still no joy. If my browser is closed, it now opens IE (which is not my default browser), but doesn't go to the page in the link. It just opens to my default home page. If I leave IE open, the links to nothing.
I'm still not exactly sure what's happening, but Rick Quatro wins the prize (just try to collect, Rick ;). He suggested opening the PDF from my browser (Firefox, in this case), then trying the links. Lo and behold, they work fine when I open the PDF from Firefox. It seems like there's something else between my Acrobat and browser that's not making them work. My firewall is not popping up anything, so I don't think it's that. Of course, the proof of the pudding will be whether they work for my client, and I haven't heard on that yet. Crossing my fingers that they do, or I'll be back. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Linda G.
