How do I disable validation when converting to PDF/A?

Q: I am using the PDFTron PDF/A Manager command-line tool. I have a question that I have been unable to find an answer. Perhaps you can help.

Is there any way to suppress the validation of the input PDF at the beginning of a job? For bigger batches, this initial validation causes a significant delay at the beginning.


I suppose you are asking how to disable re-validation after the conversion. You could do this with --nr option.
Just to clarify, if you specif –c (–convert) option PDF/A Manager will do conversion in a single step as it is validating document.

So use pdfa --convert --nr my.pdf

If you are using PDFNet SDK (pdftron.PDF.PDFA.PDFACompliance) for conversion you can define exactly what operation you want to perform as shown in PDFA sample project:
