    Hello. Is it possible to use this library to take a pdf file and convert it to pdf/a ?

      Hello Shervin,

      PDF Clown is currently NOT compliant with PDF/A-1 (ISO 19005-1:2005) due to some features that haven't been implemented yet:
      - device-independent colors (level B)
      - XMP metadata (level B)
      - Tagged PDF (level A)

      Anyway, I want to progressively achieve the compliance.

    Hi Stefano.

    Please let me know when this feature is in place :-)

      I wonder whether the PDF converter I am testing these days can help with that?

    Hi, I'm currently busy on text extraction; at the moment I cannot predict when PDF/A is going to be supported - anyway, volunteers are welcome! ;-)
