I am unable to generate a PDF file that is compliant to PDF/A (version 1b) when using fonts of the marvosym package.

A minimal working example is the following:


I compile with pdflatex of the MiKTeX package. When checking the resulting PDF for PDF/A compliance, there are error messages that glyphs are missing in the embedded font and that width information is inconsistent for printed glyphs.

Is there a way to use the above Libra symbol and generate a PDF/A compliant output?

  • How do you check for PDF/A? Can you add \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} and check?

  • I added the fontenc package, but it didn't help. I check PDF/A compliance with either Adobe Acrobat Pro or the upload tool of our University's library.
