Subject Re: Can't stamp newly created contents stream to Resources - XObjects
Date Tue, 05 May 2015 15:55:56 GMT
I figured it out. I avoided creating a new resources Map. This was my
biggest problem, because my new resource Map was incomplete. I just used
the resources Map I extracted from the PDF, made my modification to the
PDXObject, and put the new PDXObject back in. Also, this is by far the best
experience I've ever had interacting with support/developers. Thanks for
all your help, even though my description may have been a bit vague.
