When converting a PDF to PDF/a you may notice that the file size becomes bloated, for example 18KB -> 448KB.
There are 2 reasons for the increase in size when we select the “PDFA-1b” conversion:
1) extra fonts which get embedded in the resulting PDF/a document
2) the color scheme chosen in the “PDFA-1b” setting. If you select CMYK then the size gets increased drastically. But if you choose RGB then the difference in size is negligible, assuming there are no fonts to be embedded.
To get the smallest file-size during PDF to PDF/a conversion, you should use the RGB conversion options.
If you have installed PDFG7 you may encounter the following error when the application server is trying to start:
LCMerror 9007 Failed to start turnkey service JBOSS
Trying to start the application server service manually results in this error:
Error 1029 The service did not start due to a logon failure.
During the installation, you would have been asked to enter the username and password for PDFG so that you can install the product. This should be the same user which installed the application server and should be an administrator with sufficient privileges to install new software and run processes.
First check that you are logged in as an administrator. Then you should check in Control Panel -> Services, and open the Properties for the application server service.
In here you will find the properties for LogOn for the service, and here you must enter the Administrator logon details.
After resolving this issue you may receive error 1053, which says that the service did not respond in the allocated time. You can ignore this error as the application server just takes a long time to reply, but it does start successfully after some delay.
