I have a lot of pdf documents and now I want to check if the documents are PDF / A or not. Need to be able to test many files at once.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the post - I've conferred with my colleagues here and I'm afraid that there isn't currently any way to do this. Can I ask why, specifically, you need this? If there is a strong enough need then it may be something that we can add in the future, though we obviously make no guarantees.

Thanks for the reply.
I have about 5700 PDF documents some in PDF / A and some in PDF, all to be submitted for archiving in PDF / A format. My wish was to check which are NOT PDF / A and get some sort of list on them. To then convert these to PDF / A in your tool.
/ Peter

Hi petedyba,

While we do not offer a dedicated PDF conformance checker, you can use PDF Tools to convert documents to PDF/A.

If there are PDF/A documents in the input directory/file selection, the tool can skip them so you will receive a folder/file selection of PDF/A documents without extra processing.

You can select the PDF/A conformance standard from the More Options button.
