Word 2016 fix the bug in the pdf/A export filter confirmed by professional support
we must deliver word documents to an authority in pdf/a format. Our documents are successfully converted with Office 2010. Doing that with Office2016 leads to an pdf that is not conform to the standard. You an check this with the verapdf.com Tool. The authority validates the document's format and rejects it. MS professional support confirms that this is an error in Office 2013 and Office 2016. Ticket SR 118101119211952 Emilio Jose Piñeiro Lameiro helped me with this Ticket and allowed me to name him. Please correct this bug in Office 2016.

I am working at a data warehous and am responsible for business reports. I need a well functioning PDF export when using Office 2016. I cant always do a test whether an exported pdf document is readable. This is causing possible damage to my work as a cant be securly documentating my important workflows and dependencies in universes to my reports.

PDF/A is an International Standard: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PDF/A
We need the standard for our reporting to BaFin. It just seems not fair to only offer a fix for our problem to a "Premium Support" license, when we are talking about a common International Standard.
It works fine on Office 2019 preview. It seems that this is an issue that is already known on O2013 / O2016 version.
The point would be to ask if this design issue will be fixed on at least O2016 version since it has been already fixed on O2019 preview.
