i have created a pdf with syncfusion tools and it seems invalid.

The code for PdfDocument creation is the following

Dim pdfDocument As New PdfDocument(PdfConformanceLevel.Pdf_A1B)
pdfDocument.FileStructure.Version = PdfVersion.Version1_4
pdfDocument.FileStructure.CrossReferenceType = PdfCrossReferenceType.CrossReferenceTable

The code for PdfFont creation is the following

Dim font As System.Drawing.Font = New System.Drawing.Font(name, size, fontStyle)
Dim pdfFont As New PdfTrueTypeFont(font, True)

The result is that when i open the PDF file in AcrobatReader it seems a valid PdfA but NOT when i analyze it with Adobe Acrobat Pro.

I've attached a zip with the PDF created with Syncfusion and an image with the result of Adobe Acrobat Pro.

Hi Priyadharshini,

which version of Adobe Acrobat Pro have you used for the pdf validation?

I've used Adobe Acrobat Pro 9; if Adobe Acrobat Pro version that you used is not 9 could you try the validation with the version 9?
