Subject Re: Multi-page overlay with OverlayPDF in PDFBox 1.8.2
Date Sun, 31 Aug 2014 05:53:11 GMT
Hi Tilman,

I think you responded right before I subscribed to the list, so sorry if
I'm messing this up.

3) was that the PDF generated only used the first page of the template on
each of the 12 pages of the document.
But looking at the code I see that this is by design. This was using 1.8.2.

With 1.8.6 there was no overlay at all, the generated PDF looked just like
the original document. I will give the 1.8.7 snapshot a try.

Thanks

Laurent
