They're saying that Word documents need to be as plain as possible. So I
re-formatted some text boxes to have a black borders as opposed to orange
and now suddenly they're recognized! Unreal that it can be this sensitive.
I guess my next step will be to try and strip off any formatting that's
remotely 'fancy' and see what happens. At the very least, I guess I might
be able to reduce the pain.

the Word document and starting over on the PDF file.
