Thread: Fix for Acrobat is another disaster
Number of posts in this thread: 1 (In chronological order)
Today, Adobe released a partial "fix" for the problems with last week's
Today's update - Acrobat version 2021.007.0095 / PDF Producer Library
21.7.127 -fixes these problems.
* When graphics have Alt-text added in Word, the PDF Maker plug-in now
retains the Alt-text.
* The problem with missing outline/selection boxes and marquees seems
to be corrected.
You can read Adobe's release announcement at
What's not fixed and still needs your vote:
* The problem with PathPathPathPath on table rows is still there. And
the PathPath is voiced by text-to-speech, and flags errors in Acrobat's
* Graphics that are marked decorative / artifacts in Word are still
coming out with code gibberish in the PDF. AND they are encased in a <P>
tag, not a <Figure> tag, which is a violation of the PDF/UA-1 standard. This
crud is picked up by text-to-speech software, rather than being artifacted.
