Asunto: [gs-devel] Problem converting to PDF/A


Hi all,


I'm trying to convert PDF to PDF/a using ghostscript 8.71 but I've found
some problems with the attached simple pdf document (test.pdf) and others.


The problem is that the produced PDF is (I think) wrong. I mean, If I tried
to extract the plain text I get odd characters in random positions over the
document, while the original document is right.


I've seen that font names has been changed for something like:
X-OneByteIdentityH and CID


The command I'm using is:


-dProcessColorModel=/DeviceCMYK -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=result.pdf
/home/user/resources/PDFA_def.ps test.pdf


I attach the in and out PDFs, the PDFA_def.ps and the icc profile.


Any idea of how can I achieve the right plain text.


My environment is Fedora 14


Thanks in advance,


Vicente Guardiola
