PDF/A

Post by petedyba » Thu Feb 21, 2019 10:44 am

Hello
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.

Cheers,
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.

Best regards

Hello
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.

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.
