      Description

      Hi,
      We are using pdfbox-app-2.0.0. I have 3 pdf forms a.pdf, b.pdf & c.pdf. Each of these forms are filled before i attempt to merge them. I can merge any two of these in any combination and the results looks good.
      If i merge any of these forms to the previous merge result then iam loosing field name values in the result and also the form is not editable.

      Example:-

      a.pdf merged with b.pdf to get ab.pdf

      If i merge ab.pdf with a.pdf, the resultant merged form will not have form field values in all the pages. It does have form field values in some pages.

      Is there a limitation or restriction on merging same pdf forms more than once ?

      Thanks,
      -Reddy
