PDF Portfolio detection

Post by Arthur » Mon Dec 06, 2021 1:12 pm

Hello good and knowledgable people.
Would someone be so kind as to point me in direction of 'how and if at all possible' to detect if a PDF is actually a PDF PORTFOLIO without opening the file in Acrobat ??
Can this somehow be done with Pitstop Server ??
Alternatively - if not PitStop Server - does anyone know of any other way this could be achieved ?

Arthur,

This has plagued me in the past, too. Could you please send me a file to play with? I will ask the dev team in the meantime.

Hi John;
Thx for your reply. Nothing fancy - a regular portfolio.... which still somehow is a PDF but it's not.
Would you like that to be sent over email ?? This would be on the confidentiality basis, as the file comes from a client with whom we are bound with a CDA....

I've created a dummy file to use, for now. That's better than taking any legal chances. I'll let you know what we figure out.
