Many thanks for the check that avoids this issue.
As for the specification in re with boxes larger than the media box:
In theory, trim and crop boxes may be larger than the media box. But the
specification also warns that in that case, âthey [would be] effectively
reduced to their intersection with the media boxâ
In practice, I see that as an issue of logical consistence. I donât see
a way of cropping or trimming an A5 page inside the boundaries of an A3
Of course, I may be missing something, but I see crop and trim as
synonyms for cut or reduce.
Many thanks again for your help,
