"Use Structure for Tab Order" not an option in Adobe PDF Presets?

I want to create a PDF export preset that includes accessibility features (tagged PDF, bookmarks, hyperlinks, etc.) 

My problem: 

1. When I export through Adobe PDF presets, which allows me to customize my own preset, "Use Structure for Tab Order" isn't an option, BUT 

2. If I export by going to File > Export and choosing Export as Interactive PDF (where "Use Structure for Tab Order" IS an option, I don't have the option to save as a preset! 

I have to be missing something!

No, @Coleen5F8F you're not missing anything!

 

Unfortunately, you're hitting up against 2 different program modules for exporting PDFs, both created at different times in InDesign's development cycle. They're kind of out of synch with each other.

 

The original method — File / Export / Adobe PDF Presets — has been around since the beginning, long before we even had a standard for accessible PDFs at all.  Most of the features for accessibility were incorporated into its interface, but it is missing the Tab Order option.

 

The new method — Export to Interactive PDF — doesn't allow us to keep presets for commonly used combination of settings.

 

This is one of my pet peeves, too. How about contributing your idea to UserVoice? This is where Adobe's engineers and honchos scan for feature ideas and bug notices. https://indesign.uservoice.com/

 

Let us know here when you create the idea so we can all visit and vote it up.
