Change version of PDF to 1.4

Post by John Mink » Tue Jun 28, 2016 8:34 pm

We use Inkscape as our main drawing tool for patent drawings.
Within Inkscape you can save the drawing as a PDF.
It is however a PDF with version 1.7.
(Printing to Ayumni generates a pdf with errors and is therefore not an option)

Online Filing generates an annex F warning since it expects a pdf with version 1.4.
My question is:Is it possible to downgrade a PDF from version 1.7 to 1.4. ?

With kind regards,

Dear John,

Sorry for this rather late reply. Some PDF converters do allow downgrading.
You will need to contact the software provider of course to verify this.

In any case, the Amyuni PDF converter has gone through updates and is
able to definitely provide what you what. The latest version is 5.5.11. Please
contact our customer service to get this new version. And if the problem you had
related to printing from an existing PDF file, then you want to use the Amyuni PDF creator
which does an excellent job.

Installations
