Solution


Yes, you will still be able to get all of the advantages of Enfocus Certified PDF Technology. The following description explains what happens if you change a PDF document with a certified plug-in (such as Enfocus PitStop Professional) and with an un-certified plug-in.

Change using a plug-in that is compatible with Certified PDF workflow.

When a change is done to a PDF document, Enfocus Certify PDF Technology logs the name of the plug-in to the Edit Log for the document. It also logs a description of what change was actually done, and even where it was done.

Change using a plug-in that is not compatible with Certify PDF workflow.

When a change is done to a PDF document, Enfocus Certify PDF Technology does intercept that change and logs it in the Edit Log. However, as the plug-in is not compatible with Enfocus Certify PDF workflow, the Edit Log will not contain an exact description of the change, and the Edit Log will contain only the number of the pages that were changed, not the locations on those pages where the changes took place.

However, you can still find the changes using the visual compare mechanism from the Certified PDF menu item.
Likewise, Enfocus Certify PDF Technology still tracks who did the actual change.
