(v13) Information about PDF/X files

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; and to Harlequin Core but not Harlequin MultiRIP.

Page content:

As long as a PDF context is current (that is, a PDF job is being printed), calling pdfxstatus returns a dictionary with the following keys defined:



Default: null

A string value taken from the value of GTS_PDFXVersion or GTS_PDFXConformance (preferred if present) from the PDF file's Info dictionary, or given as “(None)” if the version/info is not available.



Default: null

A Boolean value where true means the file is being treated by the RIP as PDFXVersionClaimed, and false means not. The RIP treats the PDF/X file as its claimed version only if; the version is recognized, and it is what is required according to the user’s setting. Previously, only versions PDF/X-1a:2001 and PDF/X-3:2002 were recognized. The RIP also recognizes PDF/X-1a:2003 and PDF/X-3:2003. PDF/X-1a:2001, PDF/X-1a:2003, PDF/X-3:2002, PDF/X-3:2003, and PDF/X-4 are recognized.


Boolean Default: true

A Boolean value where false means that a warning or error message about the PDF/X file's lack of conformance has been issued. true is the initial value.

The PDFXVersionValid value may change from true to false right up to the end of the page/job.



Default: null

A string value for the OutputCondition of the PDF/X OutputIntents dictionary (or null if there is not one).
