Appendix C: Implementation Limits

Appendix C. Implementation Limits

In general, PDF does not restrict the size or quantity of things described in the file format, such as numbers, arrays, images, and so on. However, a PDF consumer application running on a particular processor and in a particular operating environment does have such limits. If an application attempts to perform an action that exceeds one of the limits, it displays an error.

PostScript interpreters also have implementation limits, listed in Appendix B of the PostScript Language Reference, Third Edition. It is possible to construct a PDF file that does not violate application limits but does not print on a PostScript printer. Keep in mind that these limits vary according to the PostScript LanguageLevel, interpreter version, and the amount of memory available to the interpreter.
