Topic: Incremental updates in a linearized PDF

Hi.

I'm adding objects incrementally to a linearized PDF, and close the file with a new xref and trailer, including the root object's reference, size info and all, but the reader can't read the file. It says: "The root object is missing or invalid".

Can someone describe all the necessary changes I have to make in order to incrementally update a linearized PDF file?

I don't need it to necessarily stay linearized, but I surely want only to append the file, without editing its previous content.

Thanks a lot.
