Section F.2. Linearized PDF Document Structure

F.2. Linearized PDF Document Structure

Except as noted below, all elements of a Linearized PDF file are as specified in Section 3.4, “File Structure,” and all indirect objects in the file are numbered sequentially in two groups, based on their order of appearance in the file.

  • The first group consists of the document catalog, certain other document-level objects, and all objects belonging to the first page of the document. These objects are numbered sequentially, starting at the first object number after the last number of the second group. (The stream containing the hint tables, called a hint stream, may be numbered out of sequence; see Section F.2.5, “Hint Streams (Parts 5 and 10).”)

  • The second group consists of all remaining objects in the document, including all pages after the first, all shared objects (objects referenced from more than one page, not counting objects referenced from the first page), and so forth. These objects are numbered sequentially starting at 1.
