PDF/A revisited

January 6, 2011

Wonderful. We upgraded our computers to Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro! Now, of course, my procedure for archiving the Faculty and Staff lists no longer works. (See post of April 3, 2008–that’s how long I’ve been doing it)

I used to do it by printing to PDF where I could change to properties to PDF/A. Now the print job just hangs up.  If I make a PDF portafolio from the menu, I can’t make it PDF/A.  I’ve written to the Adobe Forum, and Adobe support.  I’ll let you know when (if) I figure it out.  As always, if you have figured it out, please let me know.

I’ve decided to take the WordPress challenged to write every week this year.  Wish me luck.

    The method you describe in 2008 should work exactly the same today with Acrobat 9.

    You say the print job “hangs”, but no information about what version of what program you are printing from, what OS platform you are using, etc.

    You also mentioned just installing Acrobat 9 – but is it current with all patches/updates?

  2. Thanks for contacting me on this Leonard.

    The print job stops and the windows task list says “not responding”.

    I am working on Windows 7, also an upgrade,
    and Outlook 2007.

    Can you tell how to find out what patches/updates might be needed? I assumed, since IT just upgraded that it was up-to-date. Never assume.

    Thanks, Linda
