Why won’t it open?

If you get an error message when trying to open the Validator, and the software doesn’t open, the most common reason is that the PDF isn’t tagged.  Please add tags to the document, in Acrobat, and then open the Validator.

Note:  To add tags to a PDF, follow these steps:

  1. Open the untagged PDF,
  2. Open the Tags pane (on the left side of the application window),
  3.  In the Tags pane, right click on “No Tags available,”
  4. Choose “Add Tags to Document,”
  5. Save.
