Respectable Community of Acrobat.

I encountered a problem on Acrobat Pro in the function of Javascript:

save in a different file format = saveAs().

I would like to use the conversion format defining the parameter = cConvID ,  from the Conversion Formats table:

 

->  com.callas.preflight.pdfa

source -> https://www.pdfscripting.com/public/how-to-save-a-pdf-2.cfm

 

From the many examples (however, not detailed enough) found online, I try to implement this function ==

 

this.saveAs ("/c/temp/test.pdf", "com.callas.preflight.pdfa");

 

... however, without success. Acrobat Pro does not process the function, and reacts only with the message:

 

"No intent of defined outputs. To convert to PDF/A Pdf File, an intent of output is a net. Define an intent of output in preliminary verification preferences. "

 

Note: All files in use are included in Trusted Folder.

Probably only to define the function =

this.saveAs ("/c/temp/test.pdf", "com.callas.preflight.pdfa");

it is not enough.

 

Request:

- This function, does it work?

- Where is my mistake?

Thank you in advance.

With respect ...

Something to try:

Go to Edit - Preferences - Convert from PDF - PDF/A, and make sure at least one of the options is selected there, like this:

I would also disable "Enable protected mode" and "Run in App Container" in the Security (Enhanced) tab of the Preferences dialog.

And! The saveAs method requires a privileged context. You can't call it directly from a button. But test your code in the JS Console first, and see if it works from there.

Dear Community Expert Try67,

as first - I thank you very much for your courteous reply, and as a second - I apologize to having answered with a wide delay, I had to focus on other objectives and now I went back to the old problem of Acrobat.

On the subject with the first demand:

"Save in a different file format with cconvid com.callas.preflight.pdfa";

I performed in detail your advice by applying following actions:

1) Preferences -> Security (Enhanced) -> Disable "ENABLE PROTECTED MODE" + Disable "Run in Appiner App" ;

2) Preferences -> convert from pdf -> pdf/a -> edit settings -> Preflight:

    *Convert to pdf/a = save as pdf/a-2

    *Create PDF/A-2 ACCORDING TO CONVERSION PROFILE = ??? Is empty !!!

    *For the Following Viewing or Printing Condition = ??? Is Nothing !!!

I attach the relative screen 1) + 2)

However, even with the conversion by bars of the commands:

File -> Save as Other -> Archivable PDF (PDF/A) -> Error:

 

"No intent of defined outputs. To convert to PDF/A Pdf File, an intent of output is a net. Define an intent of output in preliminary verification preferences. "

 

... is always present, preventing conversion.

 

I have to notice, that I use an Acrobat Pro 2023 covered by the license - but as a result = I can't carry out the basic operation => "convert into pdf/a".

I attach other screen 3) + 4)

Thank you in advance for your availability and patience.

I wish good job.
