Hello,

 

is there a possibility to set the encoding to ISO 8859-15 for a pdf-document (form).

I use Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017 for genarating a pdf form and converting it to pdf/a.

Also: even if you could somehow change the encoding in the PDF, it would not add more characters to those already available in the PDF... if you are trying to use characters not in a font, you need to use a different font.

What aspect of the encoding are you trying to control? For example, the encoding used in an FDF, or the encoding used in an http submission to a web server, something else? Your options are limited, but even more so since you've chosen a format (PDF/A) where JavaScript is forbidden.

That's not even a concept in PDF. Every font has a separate encoding, but it is not specified in terms of ISO 8859 numbers. It's also largely completely invisible because text extraction must convert to an external recognised encoding.
