A tool that has a little better at Adobe PDF table editing feature is CommonLook from NetCentric:


It is still going to take some time, but probably less time than using Acrobat.

>My name is Alyson Fayollat and I'm a designer for Team Member Marketing. We're currently working on a project that requires the end-result PDF (coming from InDesign CS4) to be accessible. The problem we're running into is having tables read correctly. Although they're tagged correctly in InDesign (we hope), a lot of work still needs to be done in Acrobat Professional. When selecting the table in Acrobat, the table editor tool doesn't seem to be an option for finessing. Do we need to manually change the order of the tags in the Tags palette? Or is there a better way?
