Can the output PDF Version be controlled by BIRT? [message #685942] Mon, 20 June 2011 21:17 Go to next message

I googled/searched for an answer to the following situation, but came up empty. My Google-fu is weak today.

We are running BIRT 2.3.1 embedded in a J2EE application, generating postscript and PDF files by the hundreds (soon to be by the thousands).

I've gotten a request to have BIRT create the PDF files to be compatible with Acrobat 4.x. That is, the PDF has to be in PDF version 1.3. Currently, the PDFs are flagged as PDF version 1.4 / Acrobat 5.x.

Is this something easily 'do-able' in BIRT? Perhaps less easily 'do-able', but still possible? Links to examples or information would be most appreciated?

Steve,

I am not sure this will work but you could try modifying the source code for the pdf emitter.
Open PDFPageDevice.java and in the two constructors the writer is created. add
writer.setPdfVersion(PdfWriter.VERSION_1_3);
right after the writer is created.

I don't think that's a direction we can pursue at this time, but I appreciate your response - it definitely provides a target for expectations.
