Overwrite with 'Convert to PDF/A'

Wed Feb 15, 2017 8:55 am

We want to convert our pdffiles to monochrome.
The 'Convert to PDF/A' can perform this task.
But it is not possible to overwrite the file, to keep the same name.
The other tools doesn't seem to have this issue.

Is this intended? Or are we missing an option?

Hello Pieter,

I will have to ask our devs if this is intentional, but most likely it is - as PDF/A files are for long term preservation, and some information could be discarded/no longer available after the conversion - so that is why we keep both copies.
In the mean time - can you try to e.g. store the files in an alternative folder so that you can e.g. preserve the files structure and then just remove the original files, and keep the new ones.
