Does DFE support PDF/VT version 2 files?


DFE supports only PDF/VT-1 files.

PDF/VT-2 supports external references. Our DFE does not support that.

When you create a print job based on a PDF/VT file you cannot specify the location of any external references.

PDF/VT-2s is about streaming, i.e. transferring the data straight over the network without writing files.  DFE do not support such an input channel.

Refer below for more details about different versions of PDF/VT and its description:
