In the past I have been able to export my .mxd to PDF and I have been able to turn individual point layer's visibilty on/off within the layer tab (if the layers are in a groub in the .mxd's table of contents). See the below screen shot, where all layers under 'Act booked' can be toggled.
When I try this with polygon layers, the option to turn on/off visibilty of these layers within the PDF is not there.
As far as I can see I have used the same export options for both .mxds; 'Export PDF Layers Only' is selected for both.
Is it simply not possible to export polygon layers individualy or am I missing something here?
I'm using ArcGIS 10.0, SP5 on windows XP.
