    InDesign CS6 not tagging interactive PDF

    McShaman Level 1

      I don't know if I am doing something wrong but I can't get InDesign to export a properly tagged PDF.


      Can anybody please try the following steps and confirm the results:


      • Create a new document in InDesign
      • Draw a text box on the document
      • Type "Text" in the text box
      • Create new paragraph style called "My heading"
      • Under Export Tagging in the Paragraph Style Options select "H1" under PDF->Tag
      • Add the text box to the Articles panel
      • In the Articles panel fly out menu activate Use for Reading Order in Tagged PDF
      • Export document as Adobe PDF (Interactive)
      • In the Export to Interactive PDF options window both options for Tagged PDF are checked
      • Open the document in Acrobat Pro
      • Open the Tags navigation pane
      • Expand the tag hierarchy


      If the document is tagged correctly one of the tags should be labeled <H1> . Instead min is labeled what I called it within InDesign <My_heading>. This is essentially making larger documents with multiple heading levels inaccessible.


      Can anybody else confirm this issue or provide a fix (other than manually changing tags from within Acrobat Pro)?
