  • Create a scalable comparison workflow by converting both PDF files (original and new representation) to images and compare via e. g. matchbox tool if there are visible difference
  • Idea Andres/Slub about Repair PDF + QA: Save all the PDF objects like e. g. streams, hashmaps, strings, floats in a list and save the MD5 checksum. Reapir the structures of the PDF and put all the objects back. MD5 should not have changed.
