Supported document types
For complete access to the rendering capabilities of the
Output service, it is recommended that you use an XDP file as input.
In some cases, a PDF file can be used. However, using a PDF file
as input has the following limitations:
A PDF document that does not contain an XFA stream cannot
be rendered as PostScript, PCL, or ZPL. The Output service can render
PDF documents with XFA streams (that is, forms created in Designer)
into laser and label formats. If the PDF document is signed, certified,
or contains usage rights (applied using the Reader Extensions service),
it cannot be rendered to these print formats.
Run-time options such as PDF version and tagged PDF are not
supported for Acrobat forms. They are valid for PDF forms that contain
XFA streams; however, these forms cannot be signed or certified.
