Topic: Reflow of PDF page when dynamically insert text

I searched forum about reflow of a PDF page by inserting new content, from what I read, PDF have no concept of reflow when adding content.

However, I see tagged PDF have reflow capabilities. In particular, it have HTML structure like table tr td.

I exported a table in Word to PDF, exported table does not contain any borders.

Exported PDF in In Acrobat show correct structure. Ie, table tr tr tr...

I started adding text to table in PDF in Acrobat Pro, text will reflow as I type in data.

From this behavior, it appears that if I change tagged PDF content programmatically, ie, change form field or special tag to real data contain many line of text, content will reflow.

Anyone face similar situation?
