Enable editing of PDF/A

2 posts in this topic

Hi

Sometimes this message pops-up above a PDF document:

    "This file claims compliance with the PDF/A standard and has been opened read-only to prevent modification."

 

No editing possible. Even copying text is impossible.

Now I open the same PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC version 2018. Same message appears: 

    "This file claims compliance with the PDF/A standard and has been opened read-only to prevent modification."

    And a button: "Enable editing".

 

I click on it, save it, open it in PDFelements, and it's fully writeable. 

How can I do the same without using Acrobat Reader?

(PDFelement 6.3.6.3189 Mac version)

 

Thanks, Rene.

Hey Rene, 

 

Could you please send us a file that triggers the pop-up? 

You can either attach it here or email it to pdfelement@wondershare.com.

 

Best,

Rebecca
