PDFA validation not passed

Post by cmarsura » Thu Apr 14, 2011 3:18 pm

I get a PDF/A validation failure for a pdf printed trough the PDF-XChange 4.0 printer configurated to emit a PDF/A-1b file. I validated resulting file (ABR10SW_userguide_it-ITPages31-32.pdf) using the Callas web validator at http://www.datalogics.com/products/call ... nedemo.asp, requesting PDF/A-1b validation. The validation did not pass because "CIDset in subset font missing (8 matches on 1 page)
- Text xcv9CE8.tmp,Bold 11.039 - 12.0 pt TrueType (CID) embedded (as a subset) (8 matches)"
. (See included pdfaPilot Report.mht).
To print the ABR10SW_userguide_it-IT.pdf I used your demo progam from the PDF-XChange Viewer SDK ...\Bin\AX_VBExamples\PrintDocument.exe, in the Show Print Dialog button:
- I selected PDF-XChange 4.0 printer requesting Properties->General->Use Advanced Settings->Conform to Specification: "PDFA/1b (RGB)";
- in the print dialog I changed the:
-- Page Range to 31-32;
-- Advanced...->Print Text as Curves:Auto

Note that:
- I am using your most recent tools; PDF-XChange PRO SDK and Viewer are from the 4.194 version;
- The problem must be probably in the pages 31-32 because printing the ABR10SW_userguide_it-IT.pdf up to page 30, the resulting file passes the validation instead printing up to page 35 the validation fails;

Hello Carlo,

We had a ticket for this case:
#993: PDFA validation not passed

And I just got a notifications from our devs that this has been resolved, and that the fix would be in the new build (196) which we are expecting by the end of this week.
