 * Block below contents:

 * Fill PDFlib blocks so that they are placed below the imported page

 *

 * Fill PDFlib blocks such that not the block contents are placed on top of the

 * original imported page, but the other way round.

 * Place the PDF page using PDF_fit_pdi_page(), but supply the "blind" option

 * to suppress the actual page contents. Fill the block(s) as desired. Place the

 * PDF page again, this time without the "blind" option.

 *

 * Required software: PPS 9

 * Required data: PDF document containing blocks
