document, select Advanced menu,
then select Preflight:
Select the dropdown
compliance, and select
option to create the PDF/A document.
Many web sites,
such as uscourts.gov and jud.ct.gov, make PDF forms (in
standard PDF format) available for filling out
in a browser. If you have Acrobat 9
Professional, you can save such a form, then
convert it to PDF/A. However, if you have
Acrobat 9 Standard instead of Professional, you
must “print” it from the browser, with “Adobe
PDF” selected as the “printer”.
The print option is
also available in word processors, in Acrobat 9
Standard and Professional, and in other
contexts. Note that it will create a file in
PDF/A-1b format that is acceptable for
submission, but hyperlinks (if any) will not
work - so use it only if you have no other
option for creating PDF/A.
Open the PDF in the
browser or other application. Select the
application’s Print option (often on the
menu). In the list of printers, select Adobe
button. On the Adobe PDF Settings tab, select
one of the PDF/A1b:2005 options from the
Settings drop-down (either option is OK).
Then select the OK button:
