Default Word 2007 PDF Save as PDF Boxes Around Firlds

Whenever I save a document as a PDF file, boxes appear around all field
references in the generated PDF. Needless to say, this is a bit embarassing,
especially in merge files. Is there a way to prevent the boxes from
appearing? I could find no PDF settings anywhere.

How are you converting to PDF?

I have added a "Save as PDF" button to the ribbon, and click on this. I use
the internal MS Acrobat converter included with Office 2007.

Hi Brett,

Are you using a beta or the trial version of Office 2007?
I created a set of Mailmerge letters from the 'Mailings' tab, inserting both Mailmerge fields from my Recipient list data file and
from the Home=Quickparts=Field choices.

I didn't see any outlines on the fields in the PDF file.

Can you list the steps you're using in a new blank document where this occurs?
