    I’m testing the DMS edition version and found out some issues.
    Those were not happend in case of general PDF generated by PD4ML

    1. permission is not applied to the PDF/A type
    Is this normal?

    2. Generated PDF(PDF/A type) didn’t display header, footer and watermark image
    This code works fine when generates PDF file not PDF/A type
    header.setWatermark(“file:”+_logoPath,new Rectangle(10,18,logo_width,logo_height), 100);

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,


    1. Yes, PDF/A spec does not allow any security settings applied.

    2. It would help a lot if you publish an HTML code sample, which illustrates the problem, all relevant resources (images, CSS) and a resulting PDF.


    Thanks for quick reply
    I attach sample file (HTML, PDF,
    This code works fine if remove generatePdfa function call.

    Please check this.

    Kind regards,


    Dear supporter,
    I have additional question on PDF/A
    When I load generated PDF(PDF/A type) using Adobe reader and it shows some warning message.
    Please check the attached image.
    Sorry it’s Korean characters and it means that
    “This page has error. Acrobat cannot display this page properly. Please ask to writer and solve this problem”

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,


    I inspected content and analysed recipe.pdf from it.

    The PDF has been generated with PD4ML version: 380fx3 Pro (not DMS), so it ignores enablePdfa() API call. Please check if it your application uses an older cached pd4ml.jar instance.

    Also PDF/A file spec prohibits image transparency, which makes transparent/translucent watermarking not allowed.


    Forthcoming PD4ML version will suppress image transparency mask (if any) in PDF/A output mode.
