PDF Conformance

To View conformance levels for PDF's go to Step 9 of 10 in Document Type Configuration > OCR >Configure > PDF tab > PDF Conformance > 1.4, 1.5+, and PDF/A-1b

Conformance levels have more to do with the application that will be opening and managing the PDF files. If an application is only compatible with 1.4 and lower the conformance will need to be changed so that the PDF can be opened by the application. The same applies for PDF conformance 1.5+. PDF/A-1b is a standard that is built for long term archiving. It uses a standardized ISO formatting built to conform with long term archiving and out of the PDF/A formats is the most heavily adopted long term archiving PDF standard.
