Thanks for clarifying this shortcoming of the print to PDF method, Shlomo.

Now that you mention it, I do recall having heard about it. But since it has 
been years since I was called upon to produce a multiple PDF set from a single 
book, it hasn't been an issue for me and I apparently didn't invest any effort 
in remembering it. Now I will.
