SynPDF and PDF/3-A standard

Hello everyone,
I need to generate PDF to the PDF/A-3 standard.
Does SynPDF generate this format?
When I do :

Pdf:=TPdfDocumentGDI.Create(false,0,false);
pdf. => PDFA or PDFA1

Do you have a solution ?
Huge thanks in advance

... a few minutes later ...
I just discovered

Pdf.PDFA.pdfa3A

but how does this command work?

How to make a pdf/3-a?

Re: SynPDF and PDF/3-A standard

If you set pdf.PDFA := pdfa3A you will create a PDF/3-A header.
But is is very likely that there would be some missing details.

Only PDF/A-1A and PDF/A-1B profiles were properly tested yet.
And ensure you test with https://www.pdfa.org but not pdf-tools.
Look at https://synopse.info/forum/viewtopic.ph … 077#p23077

Thank you for the answer.
I saw the topic.
Very nice product, thank you for this contribution to the benefit of the community.

Is there a reference book with the possible commands?

Re: SynPDF and PDF/3-A standard

The documentation is within the source code.
Some highlights at https://github.com/synopse/SynPDF#readme
And some samples at https://github.com/synopse/mORMot/tree/ … rom%20code

For long-term support, consider https://github.com/synopse/mORMot2/blob … ui.pdf.pas
which is the new unit.

"Only PDF/A-1A and PDF/A-1B profiles were properly tested yet."
Bad luck, PDF/3-A becomes a file exchange standard from 2024 (standard Factur-X / ZUGFeRD)
Do you plan to continue the development of SynPDF?
It really is a great tool.

Re: SynPDF and PDF/3-A standard

Yes, we plan to continue to support it, from within the mORMot 2 source code tree.

Any help is welcome to follow PDF/3-A support.
