Create PDF/A

Post by janko » Sun Mar 09, 2014 10:09 pm


I'm sorry for possible cross posting, but I didn't find the answer anywhere:-(

Is it possible to create PDF/A file with X-Change Editor - preferably with OCR directly from scan?

Hi Janko,

Currently on the PDF-XChange Printer 2012 included in PDF-XChange Pro 2012 (includes Editor) can create PDF/A documents during the creation phase, You would need to scan to image file and then print to the Printer 2012 in the General settings change the PDF Specification to conform to field to PDF/A (1a,1b,2a,2b or 2u). The resulting PDF will be as you require.


If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.
