Berlin – November 15, 2019 – axaio software, developer of automation solutions for PDF creation, printing and content correction workflows for the publishing and printing markets as well as for accessible PDF creation, announces the immediate availability of the new MadeToTag version 1.9.098 and its support of Adobe InDesign 2020, including notarization for macOS Catalina.

axaio software today released update version 1.9.098 of its tagging tool MadeToTag. In reaction to customer feedback, the new version includes a number of product enhancements and corrections. Among others, axaio software has integrated a way to solve problems around the anchored frame option, where text have been moved, and also the order of captions is now correctly mapped.

The entire release notes of MadeToTag version 1.9.098:
• Fixes crash when adding alternative text from Chrome or Word
• Fixes crash in PDF post process
• Correction to the optimization feature for anchored frames, which added line breaks and unknown characters by mistake
• Correction and improvements when working with captions

In addition, the new version is compatible with Adobe's major release version InDesign 2020 and is certified for macOS Catalina. Notarization is a minimum requirement for compatibility with Catalina.

Adobe InDesign 2020 offers promising improvements and features. These include changes to the user interface, such as the new home screen for a better usability and easier feature access. Text improvements have also been made, such as support for SVG and variable fonts, and the additional option to assign keyboard shortcuts to styles. In addition, there are optimizations that are not obvious at first glance, but that improve the daily work with InDesign.
In other words, axaio software is pleased to announce that MadeToTag is available for Adobe's latest InDesign version 2020.

MadeToTag is an Adobe InDesign plug-in for preparing and exporting InDesign documents for export as tagged, accessible PDF. Based on the PDF/UA standard, the PDF created with MadeToTag meets the legal requirements for an accessible PDF file. Tagged PDFs are essential for accessibility, so that screen reader devices for visually impaired people or reading software for users with learning disabilities can provide rich access to a PDF’s content. Tagged PDFs are therefore a fundamental requirement for PDF accessibility.

The new MadeToTag version 1.9.098 as well as a free, fully working 30-day trial is available on the axaio website.
