RE: Named Destinations in Profusion?

It's most likely the PDF Setup settings within FM. 

At the book level, go to Format > Document > PDF Setup. Or, from the Print dialog, click the PDF Setup button.

There are four tabs in the PDF Set dialog. Determine which of these you want to be producing bookmarks.

Personally, I enable only the Bookmarks tab, and I disable the Include Paragraph Tags... and Articles checkboxes on that tab page.

Also, once the PDF is created, you can open it in Acrobat and use Tools > PDF Consultant > Optimize Space to removed unused bookmarks. But if you have links to external files or URLs this tool can render them useless, or so I'm told.

This is all in reference to FM 6 and Acrobat 5.

Subject: Named Destinations in Profusion?

When I went to add Named Destinations to a PDF, I discovered thousands of
them already in the Destinations dialog. Many of them have numbers like
G1027698 or I1.1056192. They dramatically prolong the scanning time required
to find my 5 or 6 named destinations. 

Does anyone have any idea how to keep these out of the PDF or how to remove
them enmasse? We recently converted to FrameMaker from Word--do you suppose
they're artifacts from importing the Word files? I remember seeing something
like them, I think identified as cross-refs, in one or two files when we
were doing the conversion.

I've tried saving PDFs with the PDF Setup>Links>Create Named Destinations...
turned on and off--no difference. I find nothing enlightening in the Adobe
or O'Keefe guides, and don't have time to research at the moment.

I need to resolve this tomorrow, preferably, to have settings ready for a
product build. Can anyone shed any light on it?
