Saving to PDF/A Using an Action

In an earlier post, I described how to quickly save to PDF/A using keyboard shortcuts.  In that post, I posed a question:  Can’t I use a Macro To Do This?  The answer is yes!

Macros (known as Actions in Acrobat) can be used to automate any number of steps, including “Preflight Print Production,” which is the technical process for converting a PDF file to a PDF/A.  Because the steps involve a fair amount of screen shots, I have saved them as a PDF on Scribd,

Slideshare, and JD Supra.

If enough folks are interested, I am willing to master saving this Action as a file that can be imported into Acrobat.

My thanks to Jim Calloway of the Oklahoma Bar Association for the idea!
