1. Overlay with an existing PDF file: When checked, activates the Overlay.
2. Overlay File: Designates the location of the file to be used as the background or foreground overlay.
3. Password to open protected file: If the file you are using as an overlay requires a password to
open for printing purposes, provide that here.
4. Place Overlay as Foreground: Otherwise the PDF will be set as a background object in the newly
5. Repeat Options
No Repeat: The pages in the PDF file to be used as an overlay will be processed to match the
page numbers in the newly created PDF file. Therefore if your overlay file has 3 pages and your
source document has 6 pages, page 1 from the overlay file will be placed on page 1 of the newly
created PDF file with the content from page 1 of your source document, page 2 to page 2 of the
new PDF file and so on – pages 4, 5 and 6 of the newly created PDF file will contain only the
content available in your source document from pages 4, 5 and 6 – with no overlay content from
the PDF overlay file.
Continuous Repeat of Shorter Overlay File: Assuming the overlay file and source document
are as stated in the above example – all would proceed as stated above for pages 13 of the
output PDF file – then on page 4 of the output PDF, page 1 of the overlay would be placed with
page 4 from the source document, page 2 of the overlay file would be placed on page 5 of the
output PDF along with page 5 of the source document etc.
Repeat Last Page of Shorter Overlay File: Assuming the overlay file and source document
are as stated in the above example – pages 4,5 and 6 of the output PDF file would have page 3
from the overlay file imposed along with the matching page contents from the source document
(i.e Page 4, 5 and 6 respectively)
6. Positions: How you require the Overlay file to be positioned relative to the new file page layout.
By Horizontal: The horizontal position. Valid values are Left, Center, and Right.
By Vertical: The vertical position on the page. Valid values are Top, Middle, and Bottom.
Fit Overlay Pages to Newly Created Document Pages: When checked, the Overlay PDF
will be sized to fit the new PDF pages. This may distort the final image, so care should be taken
to check the resulting output to see if it is correctly placed.
Keep Aspect Ratio Dependent on Fit Overlay Pages to Newly Created Document
Pages: When checked, the Overlay PDF will be resized to fit the new PDF pages, but there will
be no distortion of the page, although care should be taken to check the resulting output to see if
it is correctly placed.
