    Exporting a tagged PDF isn't working

    todd_rohrer Level 1

      I just spent the last two weeks tagging a nearly 200 page InDesign file and adding alt text to the images. Basically everything I need to do to make it Accessible.

       

      However, when i export the PDF and try to open it, I get an error message that says Acrobat DC can't open it because it is either not a supported file type or because it has been damaged.

       

      I followed the instructions in that dialog box to "print" as a PDF instead, but then all my alt text and structure gets stripped and isn't in the PDF.

       

      Please tell me I didn't just waste two weeks of painstaking work and there's a way to export all this as a tagged PDF. (And, yes, I do have "Create tagged PDF" checked.)
