Subject Re: Error when opening multi-page PDF generated by PDFBox
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2013 14:33:43 GMT

I generated 3 test documents.

LoremIpsum.pdf a two page PDF document output from Lorem Ipsum web page.

GeneratedLoremIpsum.pdf is a second PDF document generated using print to PDF from Microsoft

CombinedLoremIpsum.pdf was created using Acrobat Pro to open LoremIpsum.pdf then inserting
GeneratedLoremIpsum.pdf after the second page.

I then ran the FindActionLinks code below stripped down to load then save a new PDF file against
all three files. The single documents, LoremIpsum.df and GeneratedLoremIpsum.pdf generated
files that can be opened without error.

The file generated from the CombinedLoremIpsum.pdf generates an error when opened. 
The file “new-CombinedLoremIpsum.pdf” could not be opened. It may be damaged or use a
file format that Preview doesn’t recognize.

outputting two English Word documents as PDF then combined the two using Acrobat Pro then
ran the code below. The result gave me the same error when trying to open the output file
using Preview.
