PDF formats and which ones are released v beta

Post by whoit » Fri Sep 18, 2015 8:53 pm

I am using the latest release of PDF-XChange PRO SDK Default 4.0199
and saw in the documentation that the output format "PDFA-1A" is still in beta.

Can you please give me a list of the output PDF formats that are currently 'released' ?

Using V4 PRO SDK you can create PDF/A-1 (a, b) and PDF/A-2 (a, b, u) files.
But it does not preserve PDF/A compatibility when you open existing PDF/A file and modify it.

with Core API SDK you can create new PDF/A file or open existing PDF/A file. But it also may break PDF/A compatibility when you're modifying the document, because the API does not control whether the requested operation is allowed on PDF/A.
For example, when you create page's content, you may specify transparency or blend mode, and the SDK does not control if it is allowed by current PDF/A level - you should do that by yourself.

The Editor SDK, in addition to the Core API SDK, allows to open non-PDF/A file, covert and save it as PDF/A (all current PDF/A standards are supported).
