Auto Tag a Single Page

Acrobat's new Autotag utility re-tags the entire document.

Sometimes most of the PDF is fine and I just need to correct one page or a portion of content that I've selected.

But we can't do that: right now, it's all or nothing.

Give us the option to autotag the entire document, a single page, or the content we have selected with our cursor. Keep the other tags that are already in the PDF.

    No, the Order panel tool doesn't really accomplish what's needed. Example, these items can't be selected and tagged from that panel:

    - Lists (<L>, <LI>, <Lbl> and <Lbody>)

    - Tables of Content (<TOC> and <TOCI> with <Link>/<Reference> + <Link OBJR>)

    - Captions (without the <figure>; the Caption tag is being used on links, tables, and other items).

    - Tables with footnotes

    - Regular page footnotes with their corresponding hyperlinks.

    Second, in some documents only a partial section needs to be corrected, such as 2 pages of a 100-page PDF. It would greatly help if the user could select that specific content and autotag it without re-tagging the remaining content.

    Right now, autotag retags the entire document, which in many cases isn't needed.
