Re: Disappearing PDF content

Yes. Some people fix it by playing with the reading order. Personally, i go
to the content pane, find the text that disappeared. There is usually an
image/figure or artifact tag above or below it. swapping these usually
fixes it. More complex layouts may need similar tweaking.
