Hi Fabio,

If your client only accepts PDF 1.6, please try the following:

1) Export as PDF 1.5.

2) Open the PDF in a good text editor or a hex editor.

3) Change the version number in the first line from 1.5 to 1.6.

4) Save the file under a new name but with the file extension pdf.

That might do it.
