PDF not PDF X/1-a
« on: May 16, 2018, 06:35:29 pm »
I've been getting an error message after files upload to the Wargame Vault website (OneBookShelf/DriveThruRPG) "not PDF X/1-a" compliant.

They say it "should be OK".

I hope so. Concerned that I might do another few months work to have it rejected again. Anybody else get this apparent confusion when uploading PDF X-1a files?

I’ve gotten this warning when trying to upload to DriveThruRPG. For me, opening the PDF in Adobe Acrobat and just saving it with Acrobat solved it. If that doesn’t work, saving as an optimized pdf (make sure you select ‘retain existing pdf version’ and unselect things you don’t want the optimization process to do) fixed it.
