PDF/A mode

Tags: #pdf/a
After I have converted my files with and downloaded the pdf version of my files back to my computer, when I open the pdf files, it states that I am viewing in PDF/A mode. I compared the converted pdf files with my previous pdf files that I downloaded from websites, this tag "you are viewing this document in PDF/A mode" only appears in the pdf files that I converted with Does this phrase means anything?

I also found out the converted pdf files properties does not state when it is created or application used to create the document.

    Hello weisq,

    Thanks for working with, and asking your questions!
    PDF/A standards are defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). PDF/A standards apply to long-term archiving of electronic documents.

    Hope this helps!

    You are right. PDF/A is just another kind of PDF.

    Does it open and function as desired?

    Take care,

    I have a same problem.

    But the files I generate are not PDF/A files. But, when I open then online in IE or Firefox, Adobe sets "You are viewing this document in PDF/A mode".

    The problem is then that I can fill the fields in the forms.


    A idea ?


    Thanks a lot
