Topic: Do Referenced XObjects work?
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 80089

Section 4.9.3 of the PDF Reference discusses
"Reference XObjects" which allow you
to import a page from an external PDF document. I'm
unable to get them to work
(see my code below), but maybe there's something
more involved.

Is there a mistake in my PDF?
Are Reference XObjects not implemented in Acrobat?
Has anyone gotten these to work?
(BTW, Image XObjects work fine for me, even with
alternates.)
