Configurable operations

Document
Configurable operation Group: Document Add Modification Date to an embedded file's Params dictionary Some PDF based ISO standards like PDF/A-3b require that each embedded file that has a Params dictionary has a Modification Date entry within this dictionary. This fixup inserts this entry and sets it either to the creation date of the embedded file (if present) or to the current date.
Configurable operation Group: Document Add missing SPACE glyphs If an embedded font does not have a glyph entry for the SPACE character the missing glyph is added to the font.
Configurable operation Group: Document Append string to file name after processing PDF Appends a string to file name (before the .pdf suffix, if present) of the PDF document after successfully processing it. This fixup is only being applied when used in batch mode or with a Droplet.
Configurable operation Group: Document Apply ZIP compression to uncompressed stream objects Applies ZIP compression (called Flate in the PDF specification) to stream objects that are not compressed (excluding Metadata which should always be left as uncompressed plain text).
Configurable operation Group: Document Convert TrueType fonts to CFF Re-encodes a TrueType fonts into a CFF font. If the TrueType font contains a Differences array, it is removed when applying this fixup. Some ISO-based standard prohibit the use of Differences arrays. This fixup will only convert fonts that are embedded into the PDF file.
Configurable operation Group: Document Convert TrueType fonts to CID Re-encodes a TrueType font into a CID based TrueType font. If the TrueType font contains a Differences array, it is removed when applying this fixup. Some ISO-based standards prohibit the use of Differences arrays. This fixup will only convert fonts that are embedded into the PDF file.
Configurable operation Group: Document Convert all embedded non PDF files to PDF Converts all embedded files that are not of type PDF into PDF files if possible.
Configurable operation Group: Document Convert fonts to outlines Converts fonts to outlines.
Configurable operation Group: Document Correct language for list labels Fixes a bug in Indesign CS 5.5 and CS 6 where list labels are always set to US English language, by making list labels inherit the language of the list item to which they belong.
Configurable operation Group: Document Create bookmarks from headings Creates bookmarks from headings if PDF is a tagged PDF.
Configurable operation Group: Document Discard embedded thumbnails Discards thumbnails embedded in PDF document. Embedding of thumbnails typically is not necessary anymore as Acrobat and Adobe Reader create them on the fly if they are needed.
Configurable operation Group: Document Embed file
Configurable operation Group: Document Embed missing fonts If a PDF uses fonts which are not embedded into the PDF file they are embedded when using this fixup. It is required that the respective fonts are available in the operating system or in a specified folder. Some fonts may have a flag indicating that their licence does not allow embedding. In this case the fonts are not embedded into the PDF.
Configurable operation Group: Document Fix font encoding (CIDSet) This fixup creates a CIDSet for font subsets as required by some ISO standards such as PDF/A.
Configurable operation Group: Document Fix font encoding (CIDToGIDMap) This fixup sets a missing CIDToGIDMap to “Identity”. Some ISO standards such as PDF/A require that a CIDToGIDMap is present for all Type 2 CIDFonts.
Configurable operation Group: Document Fix font encoding (CharSet) This fixup creates a CharSet for font subsets as required by some ISO standards such as PDF/A.
Configurable operation Group: Document Fix glyph width information This fixup normalizes the glyph width information of the PDF and the fonts as required by some ISO standards such as PDF/A.
Configurable operation Group: Document Initial view The way a PDF is presented in a PDF viewer can be modified and saved within a PDF document. There are options for Layout and Magnification, Window options and User interface options.
Configurable operation Group: Document Insert CMap for CID fonts This fixup inserts CMaps for CID fonts if it is missing in the font.
Configurable operation Group: Document Insert missing F and UF entries for embedded files Some PDF based ISO standards like PDF/A-2 require that for each embedded file exists a F and a UF entry.
Configurable operation Group: Document Insert missing Type entry in StructElem objects PDF/A-1 requires that StructElem objects in a tagged PDF must contain a "Type" entry with a value of "StructElem". By applying this fixup the "Type" entry is added in all StrucElem objects in a PDF document as necessary.
Configurable operation Group: Document Make font name unique This fixup adds a prefix to the names of embedded fonts. In that way problems with equal font names but different glyphs can be prevented.
Configurable operation Group: Document Map structure to predefined types Tagged PDF allows the use of custom structure elements. Some PDF based ISO standards require that only predefined tags are used. This fixup maps all custom structure elements to the standard paragraph tag <P> by adding these entries to the internal mapping table "Role Map" of the PDF.
Configurable operation Group: Document Mark all non-structure elements as artifact Marks all elements not contained in the tagging structure as artifact.
Configurable operation Group: Document Mark headers and footers as pagination artifact Mark headers and footers as pagination artifact. Never affects elements contained in tagging structure.
Configurable operation Group: Document Merge adjacent headings if heading level is the same If two heading elements without other content between them have the same heading level, they are merged into one heading element.
Configurable operation Group: Document Optimize the PDF for fast web view Optimizes the PDF for fast web view. Linearizes the PDF such that it can be served more quickly over the internet by a web server that supports byte serving.
Configurable operation Group: Document Prepare encoding entry in TrueType fonts for PDF/A-1 Converts the encoding entry in TrueTypes fonts into a name object with the name of the encoding as its value as required by PDF/A-1.
Configurable operation Group: Document Protect object level metadata Protects object level metadata, for example for images, against removal during processes like transparency flattening.
Configurable operation Group: Document Recompress LZW as ZIP Recompresses any objects compressed as LZW into ZIP (internally called Flate). This is a completely lossless processing step that may be required if the PDF is to be converted to PDF/X or PDF/A (for which LZW is prohibited).
Configurable operation Group: Document Reduce structure to predefined types Tagged PDF allows the use of custom structure elements. Some assistive devices though only support predefined standard structure elements. This fixup remaps custom structure elements to predefined structure elements.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove CIDSet if incomplete CIDSets are used in embedded subset fonts in order to list all glyphs that are present in the font file. They are not required in a valid PDF file. Some PDF based ISO standards like PDF/A-2 require that if a CIDSet is present it has to be complete. It may therefore be useful to remove a CIDSet if incomplete.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove CharSet if incomplete CharSets are used in embedded subset fonts in order to list all glyphs that are present in the font file. They are not required in a valid PDF file. Some PDF based ISO standards like PDF/A-2 require that if a CharSet is present it has to be complete. It may therefore be useful to remove a CharSet if incomplete.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove Signatures Removes signatures from documents and optionally leaves the visual appearance of related objects unchanged.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove XFA Remove XFA resource entry from "Interactive Form Dictionary".
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove additional encoding entries in cmap of symbolic TrueType fonts Some PDF ISO standards require that an embedded symbolic TrueType font must not define more than one encoding in its cmap table. This fixup tries to remove all but one encoding in a way that the PDF will not change its appearance. If this is not possible, it will not modify the PDF file at all.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove embedded files Removes embedded files to decrease the file size.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove empty group and block level elements from tagging structure Eliminates empty paragraphs and headings in tagging structure.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove job tickets Removes job ticket information embedded in a PDF document.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove object metadata protection Removes protection for object level metadata which has been inserted into a PDF file by using the fixup “Protect object level metadata”.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove re-mapping of predefined tags Predefined tags should not be remapped to other predefined tags or to custom tags or to themselves. Any such remapping is removed by this fixup.
Configurable operation Group: Document Remove, apply or adjust object compression This fixup applies one out of several object compression options: Object compression can be applied to just the document structure, the entire file, or it can be removed. PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3 and PDF/A-1 prohibit the use of object compression.
Configurable operation Group: Document Repair invalid ToUnicode CMap information in fonts Repairs syntactical problems in the ToUnicode CMap of CID fonts.
Configurable operation Group: Document Repair invalid bookmark hierarchies Repairs syntactical problems in the bookmark structure.
Configurable operation Group: Document Set AF entry for embedded files Some PDF based ISO standards that an AF entry is present for every embedded file.
Configurable operation Group: Document Set MIME type entry for embedded files Some PDF based ISO standards like PDF/A-3b require that each embedded file has a subtype entry with the MIME type of the embedded file. This fixup inserts this entry. Embedded files are referenced by their name, RegEx can be used in order to specify rules based on the file type extension. E.g. '^.*\.doc$' will reference all MS Word files with a file extension .doc; the MIME type would be application/msword in that case.
Configurable operation Group: Document Set PDF Version This fixup only sets the PDF version, but does not adjust any features in the PDF document.
Configurable operation Group: Document Set document language to language in tagging structure Sets the document level entry for language to the same value that is present in the tagging structure.
Configurable operation Group: Document Set labels in unordered lists to generic bullet character Sets ActualText for labels in unordered lists to generic bullet character "•". Does not modify appearance of page content.
Configurable operation Group: Document Set relationship entry for embedded files The AFRelationship entry is used in PDF/A-3 files in order to define the type of relationship between an embedded file and the PDF into which it is embedded.
Configurable operation Group: Document Set values to implementation limits of PDF/A if possible The PDF/A standard requires that a PDF follows all implementation limits of Acrobat 5. This fixup repairs the values if possible without modifying the appearance of the PDF file.
Configurable operation Group: Document Subset fonts Creates font subsets of fully embedded fonts to minimize the filesize.
Document info and Metadata
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Make document XMP Metadata compliant with PDF/A-1 PDF/A-1 imposes syntactical requirements for several document XMP Metadata fields, as well as consistency between Document Info fields and document XMP Metadata fields.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Make document XMP Metadata compliant with PDF/A-2 PDF/A-2 imposes syntactical requirements for several document XMP Metadata fields, as well as consistency between Document Info fields and document XMP Metadata fields.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Make document XMP Metadata compliant with PDF/E-1 PDF/E-1 imposes syntactical requirements for several document XMP Metadata fields, as well as consistency between Document Info fields and document XMP Metadata fields.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Make document XMP Metadata compliant with PDF/X-4 PDF/X-4 imposes syntactical requirements for several document XMP Metadata fields, as well as consistency between Document Info fields and document XMP Metadata fields. This fixup is also compatible with other versions of PDF/X.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Remove PDF/A entries Removes all PDF/A specific entries from the document’s Metadata whose only purpose is to identify the PDF as a PDF/A file.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Remove PDF/E entries Removes all PDF/E specific entries from the document’s Metadata whose only purpose is to identify the PDF as a PDF/E file.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Remove PDF/X entries Removes all PDF/X specific entries from the document Info dictionary and/or the document’s Metadata whose only purpose is to identify the PDF as a PDF/X file.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Remove XMP Metadata XMP Metadata entries are removed. That may make sense e.g. in order to prevent private information from being published or in order to decrease file size. Only a minimal set of highly recommended XMP Metadata entries on document level will remain in the file.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Remove all xmpMM:Manifest metadata entries Removes all xmpMM:Manifest entries in all XMP Metadata streams. xmpMM:Manifest entries have been used by some PDF creation programs, but have never been publicly specified and are not in use any longer.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Remove non-compliant XMP Metadata Some PDF based ISO standards require that all XMP Metadata entries are either predefined in the XMP specification or covered in an embedded XMP extension schema. This fixup removes all XMP Metadata entries that do not comply with the respective standard.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set Author entry Sets the Author entry for the PDF document
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set Creation date entry Sets Creation date to current date if it is empty.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set Keywords entry Sets Keywords entry. Note: Any Keywords value already present will be overwritten

Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set PDF/UA-1 entry Sets PDF/UA-1 entry in XMP metadata.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set Subject entry Sets the Subject entry for the PDF document
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set Title entry Sets the Title entry for the PDF document
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set Title entry to file name Sets the title for the PDF document to the file name
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set Trapped key Set trapped key to "True" or "False", if it is not already defined.
Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set XMP Metadata fields Sets document XMP Metadata fields for the PDF document. Only simple property-value pairs are supported.

Configurable operation Group: Document info and Metadata Set document language entry Sets the language for a PDF document. This fixup may be useful to prepare PDF documents for conversion to PDF/A-1a.
Color spaces, spot colors, inks
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Adjust colors for PDF based ISO standards Adjusts the colors in the PDF file to comply with the requirements of PDF based ISO standards such as PDF/A. Therefore an RGB or Gray Output Intent is embedded, and/or device-dependent CMYK colors are tagged with a CMYK ICC source profile. The Output Intents and the CMYK ICC profile are optimized for size to keep the PDF file size as small as possible.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Adjust dot gain Tone values of the specified objects can be adjusted by applying dot gain curves.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Convert NChannel to DeviceN by removing NChannel entries in a DeviceN color space NChannel is an extension to a DeviceN color space introduced in PDF 1.6 (Acrobat 7). It enhances color conversion and proofing for DeviceN color spaces but is neither supported in earlier versions of the PDF format nor by PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3 and PDF/A.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Convert RGB colors using Quick Conversion (Office-RGB) The Quick Conversion method performs a tranformation of RGB colors to CMYK as specified in the PostScript Reference Language Manual. This type of conversion is often better for colors from office documents than the results of ICC based color conversions.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Convert Registration color to black Registration color (Separation All) can be converted to CMYK (100% DeviceCMYK), black as grayscale (100% DeviceGray) or to a spot color named Black (100% Separation Black).
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Convert colors The “Color Convert” fixup offers very powerful and flexible options for converting colors in many ways, allowing for highly customizable color conversion settings.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Convert colors using DeviceLink profiles DeviceLink profiles are especially intended to convert colors within one color model, e.g. to convert from one CMYK color space to another. The DeviceLink Add-on of pdfToolbox comes with a set of the most commonly needed DeviceLink profiles. The extended DeviceLink profile set of pdfToolbox Server/CLI can be configured in pdfToolbox plug-in to export a pdfToolbox profile for Server/CLI execution.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Embed Output Intent Embed a PDF/A, PDF/E and/or PDF/X Output Intent. This can be useful in a callas pdfaPilot profile that converts a PDF document to a PDF/A, PDF/E and/or PDF/X file.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Knockout white vector and/or text objects Set white objects to knock out - white objects should usually be set to knock out, as otherwise they may simply disappear when the PDF is printed. In some cases though they are used to knock out process colors while overprinting spot colors. In this case this fixup should not be used.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Make HKS spot color names consistent Normalizes the spelling of HKS spot color names according to the HKS swatch color libraries. In addition problems where different HKS suffixes (e.g. "N" and "Z") are used for the same spot color are fixed.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Make Pantone spot color names consistent Normalizes the spelling of PANTONE spot color names according to the Pantone swatch color libraries. In addition problems where different Pantone suffixes (e.g. "C" and "U" for coated and uncoated paper) are used for the same spot color are fixed.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Make custom spot color names consistent Fixes problems where different spelling has been used for arbitrary spot color names.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Make spot color appearance consistent Unifies the appearance of spot colors in cases where the same spot color is specified more than once in a PDF, using slightly different representations in each case. With this fixup, the first occurrence of the spot is used. The fixup can be customized to ask at runtime which instance to use.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Map colors This fixup searches for a specified color and replaces it with a new color. When working within one color model (like from CMYK to CMYK) also single pixels of images can be mapped. Moreover intermediate values can be mapped, e.g. if there are lighter and darker gradations of a specific color.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Map spot and process colors Spot colors and process colors can be mapped into spot colors. Also spot colors can be modified or converted into CMYK. Use "Map colors" in order to convert process colors into other process colors.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Merge spot color name if appearance is identical Fixes problems where different spot color names are used for the same spot color appearance.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Normalize spot color appearance Adjusts spot color appearances to match those of the corresponding color definitions associated with this fixup.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Normalize spot color names Normalizes the spelling of PANTONE and HKS spot color names according to the Pantone or HKS swatch color libraries.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Overprint black Set black objects to overprint - for black objects it is often preferable that they are set to overprint.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Remove Black generation (BG) entry Black Generation (BG) entries affect conversion of RGB color (DeviceRGB) to CMYK process color and may interfere with the settings in an output device
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Remove ICC profile(s) from Output Intent(s) Remove ICC profile(s) from all Output Intents present in the PDF document without removing the Output Intents.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Remove ICC source profiles if identical to profile in Output Intent It is a provision of the PDF/X-4 standard that a PDF file must not contain any ICC source profiles identical to that in the PDF/X OutputIntent. This provision avoids the possibility of differing output depending on different implementations of PDF rendering.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Remove Rendering Intents This fixup removes all explicitly defined Rendering Intents.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Remove UCR Under Color Removal (UCR) settings affect conversion of RGB color (DeviceRGB) to CMYK process color and may interfere with the settings in an output device
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Remove all Output Intent(s) Remove all Output Intent(s) that are present in the PDF document. Removing an Output Intent can be a necessary step for repurposing a PDF/X or PDF/A file. It is also sometimes desirable to remove Output Intents if the file size must be reduced, for example if a low resolution version of a PDF is prepared for distribution over the internet.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Set ICC profile for Output Intent(s) Sets the ICC profile for the Output Intent(s) in the PDF document. At least one PDF/X or PDF/A Output Intent must already be present or must be established by a separate fixup for the same profile in which this fixup is used. If both a PDF/X and a PDF/A Output Intent are present, the same ICC profile will be associated with them.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Set Overprint Mode to 1 Sets the Overprint Mode to 1. Note that this will always only have an effect on DeviceCMYK vector, text or image mask objects that are already set to overprint, and for which at least one of the four CMYK channels is set to 0% for stroking or filling the object.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Set Overprint and Knockout Change overprint and overprint mode to define objects as knockout or overprint.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Set Rendering Intent Sets the Rendering Intent for all or selected objects, if applicable, based on current Rendering Intent settings.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Set halftone dictionary Defines the required values for a Type 5 halftone dictionary and applies the halftone dictionary to all page content in the PDF document. It is important to add entries in this fixup for all colorants. There is one sample fixup included in callas pdfaPilot that can serve as a guidance.
Configurable operation Group: Color spaces, spot colors, inks Set transparency blend color space Sets the transparency blend color space to the selected color space. It is also possible to make the blend color space simply compliant with PDF/X-4; this standard requires that the blend color space must not be identical to the one of the Output Intent. The blend color space should be set to DeviceCMYK instead.
Pages
Configurable operation Group: Pages Add marks Marks are created according to the TrimBox and BleedBox.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Add white background A white object as a background is created for all pages based on the defined page geometry box.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Auto-correct page geometry boxes Automatically corrects nesting of page geometry boxes (TrimBox or ArtBox, BleedBox, CropBox, MediaBox - in that order) if necessary.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Convert page into image Converts a page into an image.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Create bleed Bleed is created by upscaling of the pages. As pages may be upscaled unproportionally a maximum distortion can be specified. If the distortion of the pages is higher than specified the fixup is not executed and no bleed is created. If the value for the maximum distortion is set to 0 all pages are scaled proportionally. Then the bleed of the long edge is as specified and the bleed of the short edge is larger than specified.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Crop pages Crops pages to the bounding box of objects on each page.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Crop to visible based on rendered page Crops pages to the visible area. The page is rendered internally (offscreen) and it is determined where the last visible pixel towards the edges are occuring. For increasing the precision, the used resolution for rendering can be defined. Also an additional security distance can be added optionally.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Derive page geometry boxes from crop marks Inserts TrimBox and BleedBox on the basis of existing crop marks.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Enlarge pages Enlarges the page area without modifying the page content.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Flip pages Flips the pages horizontally or vertically.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Generate bleed from page content Generates bleed at all edges of the document by adding mirrored images of the content to the respective border of document defined by a geometry box. If an Output Intent exists, the images will be rendered accordingly to this colorspace, using the OutputIntent as the simulation profile. If no Output Intent exists, sRGB IEC61966-2.1 for RGB or ISO Coated v2 (ECI) for CMYK will be used as simulation profile. Generated CMYK images will be DeviceCMYK, RGB images will contain the respective ICC-profile.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Insert preview thumbnails Creates preview thumbnails of pages and embedds them into the PDF document. This enables some PDF viewers and operating systems to show the content in preview modes.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Outline page geometry boxes Inserts outlines of page geometry boxes. Lines are created in CMYK or spotcolor. Created lines can also be placed on separate layers.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Remove .notdef glyphs The .notdef glyph is intended to be used when no valid glyph can be found and should not be directly referenced. Some PDF based ISO standards disallow such direct references. This fixups remove these .notdef glyphs without changing the appearance of the page.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Remove empty pages Removes pages that do not have any marking objects in their page description.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Remove invisible image data Removes image data that is not visible and therefore reduces the file size of the PDF.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Remove objects Removes defined objects from the PDF document.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Remove objects outside page area Remove all page objects that are completely outside of the selected page geometry box.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Remove page geometry boxes Removes the selected page geometry boxes from all pages in the PDF document.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Remove page scaling factor Removes page scaling factors (user unit entries) from pages. Page scaling factors are specified in the PDF 1.6 specification for the first time. They are therefore not allowed in some ISO based standards based on earlier versions of PDF.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Rotate pages Rotate pages by the defined angle. If there is a page rotation parameter it is applied.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Scale page content only Scales the page content to a given percentage without changing the page dimension.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Scale pages Scales all pages in the PDF.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Set media box to origin Sets the MediaBox to the origin 0/0. The visual appearance of the PDF does not change.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Set page geometry boxes Sets page geometry boxes either relatively to an existing page geometry box or to absolute coordinates.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Set page geometry boxes (page box dimensions) Set page geometry boxes by specifying page box dimensions.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Set page scaling factor The page scaling factor (user unit entry) changes the effective size of a page. This fixup adds a page scaling factor to pages so that the size of these pages is modified. The page scaling factor makes it possible to have page sizes greater than 200 x 200 inch which is the maximum size for pages without page scaling factor.
Configurable operation Group: Pages Set tab order to "Use document structure" Sets tab order for all pages to "Use document structure."
Configurable operation Group: Pages Unsharp masking of images Applies Unsharp masking (USM) for images. While the parameter amount is defining the magnitude of each overshoot, radius controls the size of the edges to be modified and threshold the minimum difference between areas needed to be changed.
Page contents
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Adjust or remove Image Interpolate entry Adjusts or removes the Interpolate entry for images.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Apply or remove transfer curves Applies or removes transfer curves.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Convert SMask to image mask Converts a soft mask (SMask) that does actually not use transparency into an image mask. Soft masks using transparency will not be converted.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Create an invisible text copy for all text Makes an invisible copy of all text. This can be used in combination with "Convert page into image" in order to enable text features like copying or searching even for those pages that are converted into images.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Disambiguate APPROX values in JPEG2000 images Some PDF standards require the number of correct color spaces in a JPEG2000 image with an APPROX value of 0x01 to be 1. In cases with more than one color space with an APPROX value of 0x01 this fixup will change the APPROX value for the second and further color spaces from 0x01 (correct) to 0x02 (exceptional quality).
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Discard private data from other applications Removes private data stored in a PDF file by other applications. This fixup can help reduce file size substantially in certain cases but may affect features in other applications that rely on such private data.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Downsample/compress color images Downsamples, compresses or recompresses color images.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Downsample/compress grayscale images Downsamples, compresses or recompresses grayscale images.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Downsample/compress monochrome images Downsamples, compresses or recompresses monochrome images
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Flatten transparency Flatten transparency
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Increase line width Increases line width to a given value if current line width is below a given threshold.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Increase line width of multicolored lines Increases line width of lines using more than one color to a given value if the current line width is below a given threshold.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Recompress JPEG 2000 images as JPEG Recompresses images compressed as JPEG 2000 into JPEG. The quality level of the resulting JPEG compression can be specified. Some PDF based ISO standards require that images are not compressed as JPEG 2000.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Reduce image bit depth Reduces the bit depth of 16 bit images to 8 bit. PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-3 and PDF/A-1a allow only a bit depth of up to 8 bit.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Remove BX...EX entries Removes BX...EX entries in page descriptions. BX...EX is sometimes used to bracket new page operators in order to establish a certain degree of backward compatibility with old PDF viewers. A PDF viewer may ignore page operators bracketed with BX...EX if it cannot support it.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Remove OPI information Removes OPI information. PDF/X and PDF/A prohibit the presence of OPI entries in compliant PDF documents.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Remove alternate images Removes all alternate images or alternate images not set as default for printing.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Remove embedded PostScript Removes embedded PostScript. PDF/X and PDF/A prohibit the presence of embedded PostScript in compliant PDF documents.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Remove flatness tolerance Removes value for the flatness tolerance.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Remove halftone information Removes halftone information from a PDF document. PDF/X only allows Type 1 and Type 5 halftones, with this fixup halftones other than these two can be removed specifically.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Remove printer marks Removes printer marks such as cut marks, registration marks, registration text, and color patches. This fixup requires a BleedBox or TrimBox in order to properly identify the printer marks.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Remove smoothness tolerance Removes any smoothness tolerance entries. Values for smoothness tolerance that are too high can lead to banding on a print output device even if that device supports smaller smoothness tolerances.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Remove unnecessary transparency groups Removes transparency groups on pages which do not use transparency.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Set flatness tolerance Sets the flatness tolerance.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Set rendering mode for text Sets the rendering mode for text to the chosen number. Valid values are: 0 (fill), 1 (stroke), 2 (fill and stroke), 3 (invisible), 4 (fill and clip), 5 (stroke and clip), 6 (fill, stroke and clip), 7 (clip).
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Set smoothness tolerance Sets the smoothness tolerance.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Set transparency blend mode Sets the blend mode for color composition for objects painted.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Set transparency properties for fill Modifies transparency properties for filled objects selected by a check.
Configurable operation Group: Page contents Set transparency properties for stroke Modifies transparency properties for stroked objects selected by a check.
Interactive elements and properties
Configurable operation Group: Interactive elements and properties Adjust or remove annotations Modify, move or delete annotations - some annotations or annotation properties are not allowed in PDF/A
Configurable operation Group: Interactive elements and properties Adjust or remove form fields Adjusts, relocates, flattens or removes all or specific form fields.
Configurable operation Group: Interactive elements and properties Change Launch Action into GoToR Action Changes actions of type Launch to actions of type GoToR. This is useful when converting to ISO based standards as some of them prohibit actions of type Launch.
Configurable operation Group: Interactive elements and properties Create Content entry for Link annotations Creates Content entry for Link annotations based on link target.
Configurable operation Group: Interactive elements and properties Remove JavaScript not associated with actions Removes JavaScript which is not part of an action.
Configurable operation Group: Interactive elements and properties Remove actions Removes actions. Note: PDF/X and PDF/A prohibit actions in PDF compliant documents.
Layers
Configurable operation Group: Layers Adjust OCCDs for PDF based ISO standards PDF/X-4 and other PDF-based ISO standards such as PDF/X-5 require that layers (optional content) are used in a specific way to guarantee unambiguous rendering of a PDF/X-4 file that contains layers.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Apply OCCD setup Applies an OCCD view setup that was saved using the Layer Explorer tool.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Configure OCCD Optional content configuration dictionaries (OCCD) contain one or more layers and determine their visibility state. If the user selects an OCCD the visibility of all of the layers is switched to the defined state. This fixup allows the user to add or remove layers from or to OCCDs. Use the "+" button in order to add or remove layers. PDF/X-4 requires that if layers are present these are organized into OCCDs to make clear which ones are intended for output and which ones carry additional information.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Create layer name for all layers without name Automatically names all unnamed layers using a sequential "Layer 1", "Layer 2" etc format. This allows for changing the visibility of layers which otherwise cannot be modified in Acrobat.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Discard hidden layer content and flatten visible layers All objects on currently invisible layers are discarded and all layers, including visible ones, are flattened (removed from the document).
Configurable operation Group: Layers Make current visibility default visibility All currently visible layers are set to initially visible and all currently invisible layers are set to initially invisible.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Put objects on layer All objects identified by the selected check are put on an existing or new layer.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Remove layer Remove layer including all objects on this layer.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Set layer default to ON/OFF Sets default layer visibility when the PDF document is opened. Usually this is also the same as the initial visibility state of the layer, however the initial visibility setting can also be changed e.g. visible even if the default is OFF by using another fixup.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Set layer initial export state Sets the initial export state of the defined layers.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Set layer initial print state Sets the initial print state of the defined layers.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Set layer initial visibility state Sets the initial visibility of the defined layers. Default behaviour is that layers are visible if they are ON. This may be changed so that they are e.g. visible even if their default is OFF by setting the initial visibility to “Always visible”.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Set layer intent Sets the layer intent to either “View” or “Reference”.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Set layer name Sets the layer name for the specified layer to a new layer name.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Set layer state to Locked/Unlocked Sets the defined layers to either locked or unlocked.
Configurable operation Group: Layers Set layer visibility dependent on a zoom level Sets the selected layers to being visible only within the defined zoom range.
