PDF/A

Post by falkh »

Hi,

is it possible to convert files to PDF/A?

If not, will it be integrated in a future version?

regards
Falk

In addition to what XnTriq already wrote: A = archive, an ISO standard. Requires embedded fonts and other features for long-term archiving. The Ghostscript folks claim that conversion to PDF/A is neither trivial nor recommended.

hi
yes PDF/A is for long-term archiving. It is a standard in many companies and compliance relevant.
