Subject SV: PDFMerger Wingdings
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2016 07:11:35 GMT
The scenario you describe is correct and it was possible to open the file. The reason i found
it was that i use the org.apache.pdfbox.multipdf.PDFMergerUtility in my application. Is it
possible to configure merger to output a pdf without pdf/a compliance?

Thanks for a great piece of software.

I'm no expert. but I think you have this case:

- plain_pdf uses wingdings font (not embed)

- pdf_a does not use wingdings font and claims that is a pdf/a

- merged pdf claims it is a pdf/a but does not include wingdings font.

I think  it is possible to merge a PDF with a PDF/A, but there is no guarantees it will be
a PDF/A, so it shouldn't claim it is. Maybe if you remove the "<pdfaid:conformance>A</pdfaid:conformance>"
it will open?

I am trying to merge two pdfs with the pdfbox-app . plain_pdf.pdf contains a wingdings font
and the pdf_a.pdf is in PDF/A.

Tried the 2.0.3 version first

java -jar pdfbox-app-2.0.3.jar PDFMerger plain_pdf.pdf pdf_a.pdf out.pdf

The out.pdf is corrupt. Acrobat Reader cant find the Wingdings-Regular font.

I tried the latest build but same result there.

java -jar pdfbox-app-2.1.0-20160922.180913-349.jar PDFMerger plain_pdf.pdf pdf_a.pdf out.pdf

Shouldnt it be possible to merge a non PDF/A with a PDF/A ?
