I'd like to make certain words in a document point to a page, in the sense that when I click them they will take me to that page.

I've seen this in some documents, but can this be done automatically for all the words ? For example if I have the word "static" 50 times, I don't want to do it manually that many times if it can be done once.

I don't know if adobe acrobat can do this, but if there's anything that can, please respond.

This may be easier to perform in your document authoring program, which Acrobat will then pick up on and import into your PDF for you (for example, a TOC in Word will be imported--links and all--into a PDF).

For example, a MicroSoft Word macro that finds the word and adds a link to a bookmark in the document would work to create the links in Word, which could then be easily exported to PDF.
