    Did you turn on the Tagged PDF option on File > Export PDF > General in InDesign? Doing so, retains more of the formatting.

    Nevertheless, there's absolutely no reason to be doing this. Text
    editing in PDF is for desperate last measures, and it's a terrible
    mistake to set up a workflow based on being able to do it.

    Always, always, edit the InDesign doent. Even for one character
    changes. Then re-make the PDF.

    tabs .. why not tables .. think of the hoops people have to jump through
    when generating web pages ...

    tags will enhance the structure (or Acrobat's best guess) but why not
    think about structuring your source doent so it can be re-purposed
    more efficiently in Acobat ..
