PdfFileEditor ResizeContents method breaks pdf file


In our application we allow user to upload different files and then generate pdf file with all the uploaded file attached (very simplified).
While generating files I’m using PdfFileEditor and ResizeContents method to manually create “footer” so I can place there some information like page number, file name, etc.
This is my code:

var fileEditor = new PdfFileEditor();
        var parameters = new PdfFileEditor.ContentsResizeParameters(

foreach (var doc in documentsInfo)
            fileEditor.ResizeContents(doc.Value.Document, parameters);

For almost every file this works and I’m getting result similar to this:

But for one file it completely breaks the file, and I’m getting this result:

This happens for every page of this document, but only this document. Any other file (pdf, doc, image, anything) works brilliant.
Original page:

Am I doing something wrong or is it problem with this one document.
Nevertheless I need to make it work for every document.

Do you have any solution how to detect specific files before or after resize?
I would be able to skip resizing for those files.


I’ve fount problem with pages CropBox property, values there are simply wrong. So for now I;m detecting if CropBox has valid values, then I’m resizing it.
I hope it will help you
