Option Description
Set all PDF/A compatibility options Select this check box to generate a PDF/A compatible document.
Selecting this option enables the following options:
  • Font embedding
  • Embed standard fonts
  • Embed licensed fonts
  • Generate XMP metadata
Selecting this option disables the following options:
  • Multi-language support
  • No PDF/A compatibility
  • Automatic conversion to hyperlinks
  • Security settings
Note: Manual setting of the combination of the options described above is equivalent to selecting the Set all PDF/A compatibility options check box.

The compliance with the PDF/A specification cannot be guaranteed.

Compatibility mode This group of options allows you to set the particular PDF/A compatibility mode for the generated document.
  • Acrobat 8 Compatible — Choose this option to produce PDF/A compatible document.
  • Acrobat 7 compatible — Choose this option to produce document compatible with Acrobat 7.
  • No PDF/A compatibility — Choose this option to disable the PDF/A compatible output. This option is disabled when the Set all PDF/A compatibility options check box is selected.
Note: Compliance with the PDF/A specification cannot be guaranteed when you choose the Acrobat 7 compatible option.
  • For Acrobat 7 compatible, PDF/A validation cannot be obtained for documents created by versions of Acrobat earlier than 7.0.7.
  • The PDF/A validation in the Adobe Acrobat 7 is based on the draft standard, which is not compliant with the current PDF/A specification. The Acrobat 7 compatible option should only be chosen for compatibility with the validation plug-in of the Acrobat 7.
Multi-language support When this option is selected, the PDF Converter will allow converting characters that are not in the Western-European and US character sets; for example, Eastern-European and Far-Eastern characters. The conversion in this case is less efficient, and files tend to be larger in size. Font embedding is recommended in this case to have some PDF viewers correctly display all the fonts.

This option is turned off and disabled when the Set all PDF/A compatibility options check box is selected.

Note: When you use this option, you should select the Font Embedding check box for correct text representation in the generated PDF document.
Font embedding If you select this check box, the print driver will include all True Type ® fonts used by the document in the output PDF file. This results in producing larger files but ensures consistent look of the document on any platform. When you select this check box, the Embedding Options button becomes enabled.

This option is selected and disabled when the Set all PDF/A compatibility options check box is selected.

Embedding options This button is enabled only if the Font Embedding check box is selected. Click this button to open the Font Embedding Options dialog box that enables you to define the fonts to be embedded more accurately.
Generate XMP metadata When you select this check box, the PDF document properties such as Author, Creator are generated in XMP form.

This option is selected and disabled when the Set all PDF/A compatibility options check box is selected.

Automatic conversion to hyperlinks When you select this check box, the external references contained in the text of the generated document will be converted to hyperlinks; for example, http://www.mysite.com/.

By default, the list of the prefixes that the PDF converter should consider as hyperlinks is "www.;http://;file://;mailto:;https://;ftp://". You can specify a custom semicolon-separated list of the prefixes;for example, "ftp://;http://;www.".

Note: If the hyperlink destination is a bookmark inside the same document, the integrity of the hyperlink will be lost after the conversion.

This option is turned off and disabled when the Set all PDF/A compatibility options check box is selected.

Web optimization (linearization) To view a PDF file located on a web server or another PC on the network, the user needs to download the whole file to the local PC before being able to open this file. When you select this check box, the PDF reader can download and view the document page by page without the need for downloading the full document. This results in the PDF document appearing on the user’s screen in a nearly simultaneous manner.
Note: The correct work of this option cannot be guaranteed.
Security settings Click this button to open the Security Settings dialog box that allows you to encrypt generated documents and protect them from illegal use or modification.

This button is disabled when Set all PDF/A compatibility options check box is selected.
