PDF2PDFA – smaller PDF/A files – font compression, 200dpi rendering of transparencies

PDF2PDFA innovations:

  • Smaller PDF/A files: The PDF/A standard requires that the fonts used in PDF are fully or partially embedded. The new PDF2PDFA converter embeds them compressed, which means that the size of the PDF/A generated is much smaller, especially for large and large fonts.
  • The PDF/A-1b standard does not allow transparent elements. In order to be able to convert such PDFs to PDF/A-1b, transparencies have to be resolved. This is done by rendering, in which overlapping elements are added together and reduced. In order not to let the PDF/A-1b file size grow too large in such a case, the previously preset resolution was reduced from 300dpi to 200dpi.
  • ZUGFeRD XML via variable: For the path, folder and name of the invoice XML, variables can be used which are assigned the path, folder and name of the generated PDF file. This means that the XML associated with a PDF can be dynamically “found” and embedded.

FileConverterPro (FCpro) 1.0.101 – Supports PDF/A Level 1a, 2a, 3a

In addition to level b of the PDF/A standard, FileConverterPro now also supports conversion to level a (PDF/A 1a, 2a, 3a).

However, it is necessary that the source document already contains the structural information required for level a. If this is not included, no conversion can take place. This information must already exist and cannot be created and inserted automatically. Documents that were created using MS Word or MS Excel already contain this information and can therefore be converted into a valid PDF / A-1a, 2a or 3a with the FCpro – either “Direct” or via the “MS Office” converter Format to be converted.

  • Selection of e-billing standards – ZUGFeRD 1.0 / 2.0 / EN 16931 / Factur-X 1.0
  • Selection of a profile supported by the standard (MINIMUM, BASIC WL, BASIC, EN 16931, EXTENDED)
  • Use predefined (path, name) XML / select XML via file dialog
  • Automatically delete XML after embedding in PDF (Yes/No)

Requirement: A XML file valid according to the selected standard and profile must already be ready before printing. The XML file is not extracted from the print data.

GhostScript 9.27 Setup

eDocPrintPro free / PDF/A & ZUGFeRD Version 3.28.3 available

Innovations eDocPrintPro Version 3.28.3:

  • New plugin INI parameter – “Temporary=yes” – if this parameter is set in the INI file of a plugin, the PDF file will be created first in the %TEMP% folder. Then all plugins are processed and only then the PDF file is moved to the configured or selected target folder. This prevents the PDF file from immediately appearing in the destination folder, the processing with the plugins happening in the destination folder, and the user or another program already opening or locking the PDF file before the plugin processing has been completed.
  • Selected ESFX – profile will be loaded immediately – Previously the ESFX profile hat to be selected and then the “Load” button had to be pressed so that the settings were read in and adopted. Now it is sufficient to select another profile from the list to load and activate the settings. The “Load” button has been removed.

PDF2PDFA .NET Converter Component – Version 1.1.0

Conversion to PDF/A-1a, 2a, 3a:

As of version 1.1.0, PDF files can now also be converted to PDF/A-1a, 2a and 3a. It should be noted, however, that not every PDF file can be converted and that an automatic conversion is only possible or only meaningful if the input file already contains the required structure information / tags. For example a PDF file can be created from MS-Word via the “Save as / PDF” function which already contains this required additional structure.

     

ZUGFeRD – Level configurable:

The ZUGFeRD standard supports 3 different levels – BASIC, COMFORT and EXTENDED. There is now a parameter that can be used to specify which level corresponds to the XML to be embedded. This information is then also transferred to the PDF metadata.
