Hi,

When i run Acrobat Preflight "Report PDF Syntax error" tool on attached simple PDF file, It reports "General File Format Error" that "The value associated with the key(PrintScaling) is incorrect".

 

However the key and value written in PDF is as per PDF Spec i.e

/PrintScaling /None

 

Any help is appreciated. Is this a bug in Preflight or am i missing something ?

 

Regards,

Rajeev

Hi Pahuja_rajeev

 

We are sorry for the trouble. As described on running Acrobat Preflight "Report PDF Syntax error" tool It reports "General File Format Error" that "The value associated with the key(PrintScaling) is incorrect.

 

We tried to reproduce the issue on our end using the PDF file you have shared and got the same error.  Upon furhter testing we found that the PDF is created using a non Adobe application (Esri ArcGIS Pro) Please try to create the PDF file using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and see if that makes any difference.

 

You may also refer to a similar discussion https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/preflight-error-the-required-key-transformmethod-is-missing/t... and see if that helps.

 

Let us know how it goes

 

Regards

Amal

Hi Amal,

 

Thanks for reply. 

We are creating/generating this PDF ourselves and as per PDF spec 1.7, we are writing 

/PrintScaling /None

 

I could not find option in any tools i.e. Acrobat, Adobe PDF print driver, which allow to make default print size to "Actual size" option. Which is equivalent to writing   "/PrintScaling /None" in pdf file.

However it is always set to "Shrink oversize page", which is equivalent to "/PrintScaling /AppDefault" in most of the Adobe PDF generator Apps/tool.

The question is why preflight do not honour "/PrintScaling /None" in its report. Thanks for Help.

 

Thanks

Rajeev

I set print scaling to none using the Acrobat Pro UI, and it also failed the test. Looks like a bug in Preflight. Report it in this system: https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html
