    Hi Joel,
    We are always working to make it a better of experience for our accessibility customers.
    We’ll be adding the support of Undo/Redo in order panels and Reading Order Tool in our coming releases.
    Can you please tell me why you need the Tags Panel and Reading Order to be merged.

    Thanks
    Rachit.

    Alternatively, can I ask if there is any purpose for the reading order and the tag order to be different? Is this a legacy limitation of an old technology? Or does it exist for any purpose that helps people with disabilities?

    If there is no benefit to the end-user, why does that feature exist at all?

    Can you merge them or provide a button to just reset one to match the other?

    Bevi, they are never going to fix this. Sometimes we help each other. But you won't find any help from Adobe here in User Voice forum regarding Acrobat Accessibility things. Standard operating procedure for accessibility issues is:

    1. Ignore it for a while.
    2. If they reply, they won't answer the original question.
    3. Ask some unnecessary question with an obvious answer, mark it as "Need Info". You can even post an example document, steps to reproduce, screenshots and it won't help.
    4. Finally, keep asking those types of questions until you give up, say they will not fix it, or they stop replying.

    Meanwhile, people with disabilities suffer because consumers cannot make documents accessible because the product is so impossible to use. And there are no alternatives to the product, so they don't have to fix anything.

    Why can't the Reading Order and Tags Pane be merged?

    No Bob, they never really investigated it. I never found a work around. Is your situation like mine? Owning both a PC and Mac as part of the Creative Cloud subscription, or is this a diff scenario.

    Since Adobe won't help. Lets keep this thread alive to see if we can pinpoint the circumstances that create the scenario.

    Can you be more specific? What is missing in my explanation above? Do you need a screencast?

    Yes. Let me help you. Did you replicate my scenario? Did you try it with one License key for both a PC version and Mac version? Are you using a version of Acrobat DC purchased as part of a Creative Cloud subscription or did you use an individual Acrobat DC license?

    What else do you need to look at this? I was told Adobe actually monitors this forum.
