Why is the instructor converting their document to PDF when they already have an accessible Word document?

She uses a Mac, and when she creates a document in Word on the Mac and then saves it as a PDF, the headings do not carry over. I recall this being discussed in the past but can’t recall if there is a fix. Any ideas are most welcome.
