ArchiCAD 17 - new feature: PDF/A Support

Date: Wednesday, June 12, 2013

AC17_BOX_CAM1As of ArchiCAD 17, it is possible to save or publish views, layouts, publisher sets or the entire project in PDF/A format, a standard format for archiving purposes.

This feature uses PDF Technology powered by PDFTron.


  • Industry standard file format for project documentation archiving is now natively supported in ArchiCAD
  • PDF/A documents can be published with a click of button from the Navigator eliminating the need for the use of any external applications
  • Documents archived this way will always look the same regardless on which device and operating system you are opening them.
  • No more missing font types or other annotation elements when opening a PDF archive
