Modify PDF settings on an exiting PDF

Hi there! We have about 100 clients that we generate PDFs for and upload to a vendor's website for distribution. That vendor is now requiring that all uploaded PDFs have the fonts embedded in the PDF and the PDF be in PDF/A format. Can I modify PDF setting from WinAutomation? The PDFs are generated from another system, I just need to be able to edit these two settings on each PDF. Thanks - Laura

Hi Laura,


In order to change a PDF format, you might need to use a third party software or an online converter tool. WinAutomation interacts with PDF documents as they are and can modify them (indirectly) by using/interacting with the supported options of the PDF editor software. Additionally, you may refer to the following website that provides some more information on How to convert PDF/A to normal PDF? This applies to Acrobat, although similar options may exist depending on the PDF software you may currently be using.
