Save documents as PDF/A

Many documents at KTH are archived to preserve for the future and then saved in the archive version of PDF PDF / A.
This must be set in PDFMaker.

PDF/A (Archiving) is a variant of PDF that allows you to retain more information about the file itself and its content than in PDF. The format is therefore good for information to be preserved for the future. PDF/A is suitable for text documents and images.

To create a PDF / A file from your Word document, do the following:

  1. Open your MS Word document to convert to PDF/A.
  2. Select the "Create PDF" icon from the Acrobat tab.
  3. In the dialog box, check "Create PDF / A-1a: 2005 compliant file".
  4. Save the file.
