Many thanks for your reply, Hans.

I find suprising that /Rect entriess aren’t calculated the same way when
no dimension is specified. The following sample shows it:


  /Rect [ 12.48609 117.54327 18.46039 123.51757 ]
  /Rect [ 12.48609 100.805667 54.306196 111.41602 ]
  /Rect [ 12.48609 88.58463 50.351209 97.11594 ]

Could it be possible that all /Rect entries for attachments are
calculated the same way (with a square of about 6×6), no matter which
symbol is used? At least, when no dimension is specified.

BTW, only one attachment is shown in each margin. It seems to be the
last one. I have just discovered it accidentally:

    one\attachment[file=onandon, location=inmargin]

    two (actually)\attachment[file=notnow, location=inmargin]%
        \attachment[file=about, location=rightmargin]%
        \attachment[file=onandon, location=leftmargin]%

    three\attachment[file=notnow, location=rightmargin]%
        \attachment[file=about, location=rightmargin]%
        \attachment[file=onandon, location=rightmargin]%


Many thanks for your help,
