Summary0015112: Enfocus reports bookmarks and forms inside PDF despite not beeing used
DescriptionI'm not sure how to verify this, but my current print office that is using Enfocus to check PDFs is reporting, that my PDF contain both forms and bookmarks. I have to note that I have bookmarks disabled inside PDF options. There seems however to be no option to disable forms.
I don't have access to enfocus myself so can't check this.
TagsNo tags attached.

Same thing on Scribus 1.51, confirmed by printing office technical manager.

Thanks. I had a look at your PDF and while I see some potential of improvements on our side, it looks like Enfocus Pitstop has a bug here. The bookmarks and form fields dictionaries are empty, so there are effectively no bookmarks or forms in your PDF.

Maybe it recognizes this somehow differently? I'm pretty sure that pdfs from quark work on this. I'll check if I can get such pdf and let you know.

Fyi, Acrobat preflight does not detect any form fields either in your PDF (but will detect one if I explicitly add one). The Pitstop issue here is that it likely looks at the presence of the field/bookmarks PDF dictionaries, but does not look if they are empty or not.

Seems to be so. But still I've made checklist:
- files from indesign work fine
- files from quark work fine (I will provide one)
- files from distiller server work fine
IHMO it's worth considering disabling field/bookmarks PDF dictionaries when there are no related elements inside document.

Should be good now.
