Convert Word Document to PDF - Keep Tracked Changes

I have a button to create a PDF document in SharePoint from a word document using the "Convert Word Document to PDF". It's working really well. My issue with it though, is I want the PDF to include the tracked changes. Anyone figure out a way around this?

@Thoman you will need to use some third party connector if you want to include tracked changes in PDF, refer to this post https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Power-Automate/Problem-with-Word-Revision-Bars-and-conve...

I took a look at Encodian but it was missing one step we needed. We have to submit documents to the state in PDF form with track changes turned on. These tracked changes have specific colors. Red with Strikethrough = Deleted, Blue = Changed. When the power automate job ran through their component, it did everything we needed but keep the colors. Their solution made everything Red Lined. Not sure if some other 3rd party PDF converter tool does better. Anyone else have this requirement in the past?

@Thoman  you can try Adobe connector Convert document to PDF -  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/adobepdftools/#convert-document-to-pdf-(preview)

Looked at that one too. Doesn't do the colors also. Encodian did offer to add the functionality to their solution but we had to pay for an Enterprise Sub before they would develop it. Unfortunately for us our volume would be high enough to justify the cost. Hopefully Adobe or Encodian will add the feature soon enough. Till then this project is on hold.
