Hello, I have a requirement where I need to convert TIFF ---> PDF/A and  PDF ---> PDF/A files. I have created a action from the action wizard that open files from the parent folder from  my laptop and save the files into PDF/A format files. But the Folder that I am selecting for the parent folder is including other files for conversion along with tiff and pdf files, for instance text file and JPEG files. Is there any way I can filter the file selection from my parent folder to only choose TIFF files and PDF files for conversion?

Refer the attached Screenshot to the Action Created.Screenshot.pngScreenshot1.png

Since I have the same thing for setting a password: as far as I see it, you can only filter by manually selecting the files in a dialog. Means, in the action there should be a button "Add files". Once you click and select files which, in the dialog, can be sorted easily by type, it will start to convert only those.

yes @Doc Maik , there is a button "Add files"  in the action. but I have a parent folder, containing subfolders with tiff, text, jpg, etc, files inside them. By selecting the parent folder in "Add Folder" action button, its including all the files from the sub-folders. I need to find a way to filter out the file type to be accepted by this action, as I have a large amount of files in this structure that need to be converted.

Below is the example of the folder structure I have:

As you see, actions cannot do what you need. It would require scripting or, probably the better option, find a (commercial) plugin that exactly does what you need.
