> Hello,
> I am using the overlay functionality in PDFBox to stamp existing pdf file pages with
some test running up the left margin and across the footer of each page. 
> I am creating an overlay page, based on the size, rotation, media and crop boxes with
the text to stamp.  I then call the overlay method with my overlay pages to create the final
> The overlay code creates a PDFormXObject representation of the overlay page to apply
to the source page.  Overlay.createOverlayXObject() sets the bounding box of the new PDFormXObject
using the source page media box, but it forces the x,y to 0,0. 
> The issue I have is when the original page has a media/crop box that starts in a negative quadrant,
the overlay is clipped so some of the text is missing. The work around I am doing is to go
through the results pages after the overlay method completes and update the bounding boxes
of the PDFormXObject to be the media box as the source page. 
> I think it would be helpful if we could tell the overlay process whether it should manipulate
the bounding box or not.
