I am wondering if anyone here has experience with TerrGo's GeoPDF and ArcGIS publisher software? I have been in contact with them and they claim that it gives the user the ability to uphold links created in ArcGIS when exporting to PDF.
If this is the case, it would be a great tool for me and makes a PDF map a much better offering!
Thanks for any help,

It includes all layers, attributes and spatial referencing and will not require the use of any additional plugins for Acrobat.
This is the same output that ArcGIS now offers as described by Paul Hardy in his earlier post and is the only way in which to create such spatial pdf documents from within Adobe Creative Suite.

In response to the original question, I have a little experience with the TerraGo plugin. It is part of the BLM's eplanning efforts, primarily as a way for the public to comment on our RMPs (resource management plans).
It's been a while since I attended their presentation, but, as I recall, the exported pdf has to be enabled for comment. The public, when accessing the pdf online, would be prompted to install free software that would allow them to mark up the map, indicating issues and areas of concern, and those markings could then be extracted to shapefile.
Eplanning has been delayed somewhat, or I would be working with it on a current project. The only advantage over the MP option (which is certainly something that I would prefer) is that the extraction of shapefiles does not involve any additional software. I believe it can be done with nothing but Acrobat, with the plugin installed.
As I said, it's been a while, so I may not have all my facts straight...
