I have PDF generated from AEM 6.5 workbench ( prev livecycle) using generatePDF output activity. My form has XFA rules/hiding logic. so PDF generated is XFA based. now i want to convert this output to TIFF. I am unable to achive this as the converted version is not including these rules/hiding logics applied on form.
so my pdf should be complete flat to send to other system.
Can anyone help me how to generate flat pdf directly or use activity like optimizePDF to convert the form or PDF or give me any idea to use within AEM workbench to get completely flat PDF.
Tried making PDFA still same result.
Why does you post this in the forum for Acrobat Reader?
ohh i thought its a common support forum. thanks much for the resoponse
For no reason I can understand, AEM has a completely different forum, so moderators can’t even move your post there...
While this is not the correct forum for your question. I can tell you that flattening a PDF, any type of PDF, means loosing the interactive functionality. Once converted, and in particular converting to TIFF, the form will be just a flat image. For example taking a screen shot of your form in Acrobat would be a form of flattening. What I used to do with XFA is print to postscript, then load the PS back into Acrobat.
Thanks much for your suggestion.
I did try to convert to various formats like PS, TIFF , PDF/A but a common issue what i found during conversion is there is some data loss. All the Java Scripts that were running in PDF is been not included in other formats outputs.
Although when i used as just to Print the PDF, It did work as you said. But due to some reasons unable to do this operation automatically using code. Cannot do it manually for each request from other systems.
I will post this query to respective adobe group and will find some pointers.
