For PDF/A, the primary goal is to make the PDF self-contained. Here's how the iGrafx graphical diagramming client (e.g. FlowCharter) addresses PDF publishing and issues in PDF/A:
- iGrafx embeds fonts (PDF/A requires font embedding)
- iGrafx does not use audio or video in the PDF (PDF/A requires no audio/video)
- iGrafx includes a color profile (PDF/A requires that)
- iGrafx does not encrypt (PDF/A requires no encryption)
We hope this is helpful information in assessing your PDF archiving format needs.
