Added Alt Text and now my document won't export

Recommended Posts

Same for me.

With a test doc and a couple of shapes, I could export a tagged PDF, regardless of whether or not the shapes had alt text.

With a real document, using Digital High Quality as the preset and then selected tagged PDF, I was unable to export, whether or not I added any alt text. Just selecting the option almost immediately resulted in the error "An error occurred while exporting to: <path/file>". The progress meter didn't get very far.

Update: both of my book projects have this issue when exporting to tagged PDF. I tried a few things in a test doc - linked resources, master page objects, hundreds of pages, lots of different types of objects - but couldn't duplicate the issue.

The cause is if your document contains hyperlinks to emails/anchors, in the document you uploaded if you remove the hyperlink on RSVP it will export without an error (or export without hyperlinks or tagging enabled). It's logged with us and should hopefully be fixed in a future beta
