Hi Yan, thanks for the answer but that is not my issue. What I'm saying is
that I think the PDFBox components responsible for extracting text
(PDFTextStripper and PDFTextStripperByArea) don't consider the current
clipping area, the way PageDrawer does.. or at least that's how it looks to
me, so I'm asking is this the case? Shouldn't it be taken into account? As
for the form xobject I mentioned, it's an example to explain my issue.
