Converting from Adobe 8 to Adobe 6

Apr 17, 2012 7:51 AM



We use MS SharePoint version 7 as our Knowledge Management system.  The indexer for Adobe pdf files will only index up to Adobe 6.  Is there a way to convert our documents from version 8 to version 6?


Thank you in advance.

    PDF versions are not the same as the versions of Acrobat. See here a

    specification of the various PDF versions: ns


    Basically, unless the file contains new features which are not compatible

    with older versions, you can save a PDF as an earlier version using Acrobat.

    Acrobat Pro (8, 9, X) has Preflight profiles that support saving PDF to earlier versions.

    As well there is the PDF Optimizer.


    So, if you have Acrobat Pro you need nothng else.


    Be well...
