I’m currently trying to output standard PDF so that our end users have the ability to edit and manipulate the PDFs generated. It seems that the default is the generate PDF/A format. Is there a way to accomplish this?
No, the default is not the PDF/A, please check the “Convert to PDF” examples:
The PDF/A should be generated only if you specify the
PdfSaveOptions.ConformanceLevel option. Check the third example, “Convert Word files to PDF/A”, in the above linked page.
