This Enfocus PitStop command allows us to select the XObjects in a document. This command has no options or parameters.

XObjects (Form XObjects) are elements of the PDF format (since version 1.4) designed to define once an element to be used many times. Besides, some programs use them to structure blocks of content, to make them easier to manage and to build the structure of documents.

Despite the use of the word "forms", XObjects have nothing to do with interactive forms.

In modern work systems, XObjects should not cause any trouble, especially when it comes to printing. However, their use can make it hard to tag content for accessibility in documents intended for on-screen use (alternative texts, etc.).
