Batch convert to PDF/A allows you to convert all PDF documents to PDF/A. Each document will be handled individually using the chosen settings during the batch process. Use the settings below to create a conversion report if needed.
Select the PDF/A profile you wish to convert the documents to:
Add Files - Displays a file chooser to add individual files to the list.

Set Default Batch Directory - When checked, all files from the default batch directory will be added to the File List each time a batch dialog is opened.
Overwrite Source Files - This option will overwrite the original PDF file during the batch process. This option is not available for any conversion processes.
Note: This CAN NOT be undone. Make sure that you have all your settings correct prior to starting the batch process
Destination Folder - This option allows you to set a destination folder to place all of the processed files. You can type the destination manually or click on the "..." button to open a directory chooser to set the destination folder
Overwrite Files - When checked, if a file with the same name as the file being processed is located in the destination folder it will be overwritten with the newly processed PDF file. If this option is not checked, a number will be appended to the output file name, to avoid duplicate file names.
