With TX Text Control 15.0
a PDF/A export functionality was introduced. PDF/A is a format that has
been created and standardized for long-term archiving of electronic
documents. Using TX Text Control, you don't need separate third-party
software, printer driver or an additional component module.TX Text Control
is your ALL-IN-ONE word processing component that doesn't consist of
separate components developed by different companies or teams. You'll
get everything from the same vendor in order to integrate word
processing very smoothly.What is a PDF/A document?
created PDF must be 100% self-contained. That implies that all
information that is required to render the PDF must be embedded. That
includes all used fonts of the document. TX Text Control
provides a special PDF/A edit mode, so that users are only able to pick
the supported fonts from the drop down box in the button bar. Not every
font can be embedded using PDF/A for a couple of reasons: The license
of the font forbids embedding or a device dependent font is used.
Additionally, TX Text Control
is able to substitute unsupported fonts automatically and it provides
an event where you can replace the fonts based on your own logic. Only
this way guarantees a smooth export to this special Adobe PDF format.
not allowed. The PDF/A standard is based on the PDF Reference Version
1.4 from Adobe Systems Inc. and has been published as an ISO standard
on October 1, 2005.How to create a PDF/A document using TX Text Control?
you can simply use the Save method to export a valid PDF/A document. TX
Text Control's FontSettings must be adjusted in order to allow only
embeddable fonts to be used. If the document already contains not
embeddable fonts and the FontSettings.AdaptFontEvent property has been
set to true, an event is fired for each not supported font. All fonts
can be replaced automatically, so that a valid PDF/A can be exported
easily. If you start typing a new document with the goal of exporting
it as PDF/A, the following steps or settings are required:
* The TextControl's ViewMode property must be set PageView.
* FontSettings.EmbeddableFontsOnly must be set to true.
* Save the document using TextControl.Save.
