Subject PDFRenderer Does Not Respect ExportState or ViewState in OCGs?
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2017 00:42:25 GMT
I'm using PDFRenderer.renderImageWithDPI() to create an image from a PDF
with a print watermark. The rendered image includes the watermark text. Is
this expected/desired behavior?

Here are some additional details..

I'm using a 2.1.0 snapshot of PDFBox.

The test PDF (attached) has the watermark text in an Optional Content
Group. The dictionary for this OCG dictionary looks like this:

<</Usage <</Export <</ExportState/OFF>>
           /View   <</ViewState/OFF>>
           /Print  <</Subtype           /Watermark
                     /PrintState        /ON >>>>
           /Type   /OCG
           /Name   (watermark)>>

I've attached the resulting image as well (outputImage.jpg). This doesn't
seem like the correct behavior and I'd be happy to file an issue and look
into it, but I want to be sure this isn't intentional.

With gratitude,
