Dear friends. My name is Martin Sanek and I am closely cooperate with Xerox Czech republic. We have a customer who use Xerox FreeFlow Core where is used your engine for Preflights. My company Nextar Group purchased pdfToolbox desktop to help develop more preflights to our customers.

However now I am faced with a problem how to check specific layers name. Incoming PDF must have these layers: Kamera, Lot-EXP-128-2D, Braillestans, Braille, Info, Txt, Stans, Design. Even I play with the SW couple of hours I did not find any solution. Can you be so kind please, and help me with solution?
Thank you
Martin

Hi Martin,
The existence of a Layer can be checked with the Property "Layer name". I have transferred your request to our ticket system, where you should have received a "Case created" eMail.
Best regards,
Marc Heusmann
