I no longer get the option to export attributes to PDF from my Layout when using ArcGIS Pro 3.1. I had no problems in 3.0. Any Ideas?

On the accessibility tab if you uncheck Include accessibility tags the option should appear again the dropdown. Because of the PDF spec you can't have a document tagged for accessibility and export PDF layers and feature attributes. In Pro 3.1 we turned on Include accessibility tags by default as many organizations need all their PDFs to support this. However, that did make the dropdown appear different. It looks like this isn't included in the Help documentation right now, I'll look into getting that fixed.

Cheers,

It would be great to get that fixed because it's something that has wasted a lot of people's time who were trying to just export a simple pdf that others could turn layers on and off in. Changing this to not be the default as explained above and then not explaining that in the help is unfair to the majority of users.

I'm pretty new to using the ArcGIS suite, and GIS in general. I was asked recently to fill in an existing attribute table with data from a corresponding table in pdf format (the columns in the pdf table were un-filled columns in the existing attribute table in ArcMap). I couldn't work out how to do this.

Can anyone explain the method to me?

@ichisdeno you may want to start a new thread with this question in order for it to get answered appropriately (and maybe provide a screenshot of what you're seeing). For a quick a dirty approach at filling in a blank attribute table, I often use copy-and-paste from excel (after making sure my ordering is correct) and this works quite well. Though, there is room for error.
