I have had that happen from time to time. I do not know what causes it. Usually if I run "Add tags to Document" from the Accessibility tools, it will add the needed spaces. Of course it will make other changes as well, some of which I then have to clean up after. If the problem is on just a particular page I can extract that page first and add it back in after, to limit the damage. Not a great solution, so hopefully someone knows the cause and/or a better fix.

Thanks 'C' student, nice to know it's not just us - "misery loves company" and all that.
So far besides your reply there's deafening silence.
Come on, folks, don't any of you experts have a solution for this? Or at least an inkling of an idea what may be causing this? It's starting to happen all the time now, becoming a major problem. We may have to start by getting Acrobat to self-tag rather than starting with the tags generated from the source programs, but that adds time and effort because Acrobat's tags for our often complex documents are laughable and have, ironically, such poor syntax.
Is there a way to get a discussion seen by more people?
Accessibility forums tend to be lonely places. A shame really, not a lot of caring about the cause. It tends to be important to most folks only when legal requirements must be met.
You could try posting in the Creating, Editing & Exporting PDFs forum. Your topic fits better here but many more people read the posts there. Also, if you use LinkedIn, a search on Accessible PDF will reveal a couple of reasonably active groups.
You're right, I just saw a tumbleweed roll past.
Thanks for the tips!
