Re: More PDF remediation questions (was RE: Use of Headings)

I see this all the time, Mike. Sometimes I can fix the problem by
going into the content panel and moving any background (artifact)
figure above the content that is being hidden. Sometimes, too, if I've
saved regularly, I can make sure it doesn't happen by not moving a
specific item in the order panel, but moving other items instead. For
instance if I have a list in the order panel of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6
and I know that if I move 4 to be ahead of 1 the content will be
hidden, I try to move 1 below 4.

I'm planning on doing a visual blog post about it at some time in the
near future, and will let you know when I do. I fear I was not very
clear in my explanation here.

We saw this on a document that was created in InDesign. The person who brought the document to us reported that they frequently encounter this issue when working with PDFs created with InDesign and with Quark (sp?). Have you seen this? And do you know how to work around this problem?
