An earlier post showed an easy keyboard shortcut for creating bookmarks. Here’s an even easier method of creating a PDF from a Word document, where the bookmarks, practically, create themselves.

Note: The document must either be in outline format (with Heading styles), or formatted with Word-generated bookmarks.
