I want to modify a PDF/A file. Is it possible?

I have a PDF/A file and want to modify it. It appears that it's not possible to do that with Acrobat X. Is there a manner to modify a pdf/A file?

You can actually modify such files, however, if you do so, you really should run the according Preflight Profile against the modified document, in order to recheck or reset the PDF/A flag.

To make it possible that PDF/A documents can be edited, go to the Preferences, in the Documents tab, and switch the setting for "View documents in PDF/A mode" to "never", and that should already do it.

Hope this can help.
