Retain original file Date

Postby henryshanks » Fri Jan 29, 2016 7:09 pm

There is no option to retain the original file date. Once PDF Reducer compresses the file it changes the date to the current date and time. This presents a problem for clients that need the original date to maintain their order date integrity. Xconvert has an option to retain the original date after the software compresses image files. My client has refused to use your product because they need the original dates.

Just tested the free version of PDFReducer SW. Pretty impressive results according to the speed and the output PDF quality. I'd vote for the "Keep date/time attributes" option. It is currently the deal breaker for us.
