    Thank you for raising these accessibility issues. The post mentions about the following six bugs being introduced with the update that went live on September 14, 2021

    1: Alt-Text from MS Word is not converting into the PDF. Instead, it is dropped and gibberish code is inserted
    2: Every cell border on every table cell is being tagged as <P>PathPathPathPath
    3: The underline on Hyperlinks should be tagged as artifacts
    4: Borders and background shadings on Text Boxes are being tagged as a combination of <Figure>s and PathPathPath
    5: Paragraph borders and shadings: same deal as #4 above.Per the PDF/UA-1 standard, they are visually decorative and should be artifacted
    6: Dragging and dropping elements in both the Tag and Order panels is now broken.

    Would like to mention that out of these, #1 and #6 were introduced with the Sep 14 update and remaining (#2, #3, #4 & #5)…

    I am a writer-editor with the USDA Forest Service. Using Adobe Acrobat to create PDFs is an essential part in the finalization of most documents we produce. These bugs are a serious problem for all of us trying to prepare accessible documents. The final phases of the publication process are stressful enough without adding these problems!

    Please resolve these issues as soon as possible or let us return to the earlier version where all of these features worked.

    Thank you,
    Patricia Goude
