That's interesting.

A point of clarification... why "9.1"? The latest release is 9.3.2, and the update from 9.1 is (has been) strongly recommended due to security concerns.

I'm not saying that 9.3.2 differs from 9.1 in regards your problem... but it might.

If you can provide the Word file we'll check it out in our Word 2007 / Acrobat 9.3.2 environment.
