Hi!,

I've got a response from a "guru" here at spain stating that if we embed a JPEG2000 file inside the widget of the signature, then if the original PDF file was a PDF/A we're breaking the PDF/A standard, it'll be a PDF/A-2 that is still not publicated as an standard.

The reason is that PDF/A still not accepts JPEG2000 into the standard, PDF/A-2 will do.

As far as i know we can only put JPEG2000 images into the widget or am i wrong and there's something know or something possible to be done?

Thanks

Should be: "there's something new", in my head both words sound similar :)

Bitmap images can only be placed into the widget with the use of JPEG2000 format (that is a restriction of PDF specification). Besides the bitmaps, the appearance of the signature widget can be specified in vector form, with the use of PDF graphics elements language.

Thanks, perfectly clear, i'll not use the vector form in a near future, but i wanted to confirm that JPEG2000 was a restriction for bitmaps.
