Hello everyone,

I've read recently quite a lot about new ISO 19005-3:2012 standard. I'm interested in embedding functionality, but I was unlucky finding any PDF/A-3 sample with the actual attachment. I'm wondering if I can take PDF/A-1b file and alter the code to add some attachment. I know 1b is based on PDF 1.4 and 3 on PDF 1.7, but maybe it is possible. Anyone could give me some hint here? Also sample file (PDF/A-3 with att.) would be much appreciated :)
