If there are issues/difficulties with selecting text in the Tagger, especially when there are multiple text frames on the page, it may be due to the elements (text frames) not being arranged in the correct reading order. One indication of this would be if the Tagger generates a validation warning stating: Please check the continuation order for element [information about your tag].
One aspect within InDesign that has an impact on the PDF generated when saving a chapter version to CtrlPrint (and subsequently when the PDF is converted to XHTML) is the arrangement or the reading order of elements on a specific page.
- The elements within a layer in InDesign should be arranged to correspond with the reading order as it appears on the page or spread.
- The images below illustrate an example of how text frames are arranged in a particular reading order (Image 1) and how the elements should be organized in the layer to match that same sequence (Image 2). Please note that what comes first in the reading order is placed in the bottom of the layers panel. If the elements need to be arranged you can drag and drop them in the correct (reading) order in InDesign (Image 3).
