Hi , I need to convert a docx. file in Microsoft Word 2010 to a PDF. doPDF does a great job of converting the document however I find that some of my cross-references are displaced in the PDF document. Thereafter, if I save my docx file word prompts me that the document has been changed. It turns out that if I look at the undo text box it shows that update fields has occured during the conversion process. Can anyone assist in preventing the update fields? Note that I have deselected the update fields option when printing. Thanks

doPDF does not modify any file characteristics when printing. It just prints whatever information it receives from the application in which the file has been opened. We recommend that you also try to test the behavior with other printing software as well to see if this is a specific issue with doPDF or it is related to Word. If this is specific, let us know the doPDF version and build you are using and also provide us a sample file so we can setup a test case.

Thank you.
