This is a great utility for Microsoft products. My intention was to attach a reference *.pdf file for Adobe PDF shortcuts in the Adobe PDF navigation pane and move the focus there when I need to memorize. It nearly worked. Shortcutworld.com, bernd, had a function to download MS files in PDF. I wish there were such for Adobe XI. Adobe PDF will attach *.docx formats, so this ultimately worked.

Word 2010 Professional has no navigation pane as functional as Adobe PDF, best I can tell. Word does have a list base on heading styles in the navigation pane. But nothing like this attachment function in Adobe. So, is there anything I can do to promote a shortcutworld.com product for Adobe Acrobat?
