Why did PDF Checker stop processing my PDF document?

When PDF Checker is scanning a PDF document, it will stop processing that document if that the file:

  • cannot be opened, because it has an invalid format or is not really a PDF document
  • happens to be protected with a password
  • turns out to be corrupted, and PDF Checker was not able to repair it

If you are running the system as part of a batch process, PDF Checker will skip the problem PDF document and move on to the next one to review.

You can also add a value to your PDF Checker command to immediately stop processing a PDF document when it finds a problem and move on to the next file. This saves processing time.
