Changing the Tag Type

When making a PDF document accessible, ensure all headings have the correct level, tables have heading cells and other tags are correctly applied.

If the wrong tag type was used for a piece of content during automatic or manual tagging, the tag type can be corrected using the Tag Properties panel. After changing the tag type, control its tag properties to ensure that none of the unique information was lost.

To change the tag type

  1. Open your PDF document with Nitro PDF Pro. 
  2. On the Sidebar, which appears on the left side of your document, click the Tag icon to view the document structure.
