I have finished checking the Object boundaries for two of the objects contained within the Xerox 7535

PDF "wh-lfbc-scanned-xerox-7535-wc.pdf". This PDF file is one of the two files that NBC has released. The other PDF of these two is the Preview PDF file obtained by opening this first PDF file in Preview, rotating the image and then printing the resulting portrait image to a second PDF image file. NBC has not released any scan to PDF files produced by the Xerox 7655 Workcenter. I have checked only the mostly text layer and the Onaka signature stamp for the PDF file "whlfbc-scanned-xerox-7535-wc.pdf". The results from the analysis of these two objects are representative of the other objects. The results are for the case of the global origin point (of the screen x,y coordinates) set to the upper-left corner of the background image page in Adobe Illustrator CC. This page is not the clipped page that is reported by Adobe Acrobat XI Preflight. The certificate image is in the landscape orientation such that a 90 degree counterclockwise rotation is required to obtain the same orientation as the WH LFCOLB. Equivalent results for an upper-right origin position are also given in the second table. The screenshots from Illustrator which graphically verify the reported results are contained in one five-page PDF document which can be downloaded from here: The Top and left sides of each rectangle satisfy the 8 MOD 0 condition. The results are summarized in the following table for the upper-left origin position. Layer Mostly 1000 Text Onaka Signature 312 x 408 1328 y 1403 196 W 1749 694 H 125 39 x/8 51 166 y/8

The results for the upper-right origin position are given in the table below. Layer Mostly 2328 Text Onaka Signature 3016 x 408 1328 y 1403 196 W 1749 694 H 291 377 x/8 51 166 y/8

Hence we find that only the residual 166 is divisible by two. Thus, only this one side of Onakas signature object rectangle meets both the 8 x 8 and the 16 x 16 modulo conditions. The first page of the five-page PDF posted on Scribd is the Xerox 7535 scan to PDF image. Page two of this same report shows the graphical analysis (with the origin point set at the upperleft corner of the background page) for the mostly text layer. The left-hand window shows the upper-left corner of the mostly text rectangle highlighted in Blue. The grid consists of 8 x 8 blocks (major grid lines) and 300 PPI x 300 PPI resolution (minor grid lines). As shown the top and left sides of the rectangle are congruent with two intersecting major grid lines. This is graphical proof that the 8 x 8 block alignment (i.e. 8 MOD 0) is satisfied. The right hand window on this same page is the lower right hand corner of the same rectangle also highlighted in Blue. The lower-right corner is not congruent with the major grid lines. Page three is the same two figures for the Onaka Signature Rectangle. Again the top and left sides are congruent with major grid lines but the bottom and right sides are not. Pages four and five are the same as pages two and three except the grid blocks are 16 x 16 (major grid lines) and 300 PPI x 300 PPI resolution (minor grid lines). In this case, we find that only the top edge of Onakas signature rectangle is congruent with the 16 x 16 major grid lines. This side thus satisfies both the 8 MOD 0 and the 16 MOD 0 conditions. However the left side only satisfies the 8 MOD 0 condition. The setting of the origin point involved two steps because of the overhang of the background page to the artboard. The artboard was re-sized to match the background page dimensions and then the entire composite image was moved to place the origin point at the point of intersection of x and y major grid lines.
