Acrobat PDFMaker 5.0 for Word & Acrobat Distiller 5.0 (Windows) - installed with Acrobat 5.x.
PDFMaker provided/provides the means of obtaining a PDF with the "interactivity" (links, bookmarks, etc.) .
Printing to the Adobe PDF printer just provides page content in a PDF.
Under the Description tab of the Document Properties dialog look to see if "Tagged PDF:" is "Yes".
I'm guessing it is "No".
A Tagged PDF's structure tree (viewed via the Tags panel) orchestrates the logical hierarchy of content and page content within the PDF.
Of course a malformed structure tree can preclude any advantages otherwise provided by a Tagged PDF.
For the untagged PDF, the PDF page content can be thought of as objects painted to specified locations on a PDF page.
The sequence/order of placement is not related to the content flow but rather to how the application(s) in play are coded.
No concept of layout / format in the word processing or page layout application sense.
Basically, the painted PDF page content does not "hold" any text formatting.
That's what's slick about a well-formed Tagged PDF; it does "hold" the information.
You guess correctly, under "Tagged PDF:" it says "No."
So, how does that help me?
Thanks for the quick and informative reply, but my problem still remains...
I could swear I saw an "edit" option a moment ago. Can I not edit a post once it's been replied to? That's irritating!
Anyway, I wanted to remove the "in Reader 9.4.5" part of the title, 'cause I just upgraded to "X" and the problem persists...
PS - Anybody else think "X" looks and feels suspiciously similar to 9? Does this release really rate a new major version number? Way to go the Microsoft route of confusing and unnecessary revisioning, Adobe. Oh, and why doesn't Firefox's inline spell checker work in this text box? *grumble*
Acrobat Pro provides the means for tagging a PDF that is not tagged.
This can be done manually or Acrobat can be used to get a programmatic "best guess".
Provide you have an understanding of Tagged PDF "manual" gets you spot on.
"Best guess" can be problematic with complex content but can establish a starting point for the requisite manual clean up.
Regardless, Adobe Reader (any version) only provides the ability to view/read (unless the PDF has been "enabled" by Acrobat Pro for specific activities).
However, tagging a PDF or working with PDF Tags is not something Adobe Reader can do.
Spell check - while the post a reply dialog is open there is an "abc (with a check mark) in the upper right. Click it to spell check your pending post.
"Edit" - I believe this is only available during one's current session. Or, perhaps, while still "in" the thread. (?)
-- well, you can leave the thread, return and use "Edit" - so, current session may be it.

You can only edit a message if it has not been anwered. This is to prevent confusions such as making someone's post look stupid because the one been answered to is changed afterwards.
