Convert PDF (Bluebeam Revu) to PDF/A

Hi Team,
Are you support pdf files created in Bluebeam Revu?
I have issue when I am converting those files to PDF/A.
Some files not converted at all. And this is the code:

    string filePath = Server.MapPath("Invoices/");
    Document pdfDocument = new Document(filePath + "TempFile.pdf");
    bool test = false;
    try
    {
       // test = pdfDocument.Validate(filePath + "log_val.xml", PdfFormat.PDF_A_1B);
        test = pdfDocument.Convert(filePath + "log.xml", PdfFormat.PDF_A_1B, ConvertErrorAction.Delete);
    }

    catch (Exception ex)
    {
        string err = ex.Message;
    }
    filePath = filePath + "PDFToPDFA_out.pdf";
    pdfDocument.Save(filePath);

Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you,

Hi Imran,

I am using Free Support Forum and I do not see ability to attach files.

@pamanager,
Thank you for the inquiry. The free support clients can upload files in their posts. There is an upload button in the header of the post editor. However, you can also upload a file to any free file sharer server, and then share its download URL in the post. Please also confirm whether you can find the upload button or not, and it is working as expected or not. Your response is awaited.

Hi Imran,

Two questions:

  1. What is the status for fixing error “index out of range”?
  2. In Aspose is it possible to check if pdf file in PDF/A format?

Thank you,

Hi Imran,

Please see two attached files.
First is original and second after conversion to PDF/A.
Box in original file with white border was converted to box with red border.
I think this is the error of conversion and validation is failed.
Please create ticket for your team to fix this issue.First.pdf (14.2 KB)
Second.pdf (1.9 MB)
