The pdfover­lay pack­age pro­vides a sim­ple in­ter­face to over­lay text on to an ex­ist­ing PDF. The text to be over­layed is type­set and po­si­tioned nor­mally as you would any other LaTeX doc­u­ment. Some or all of the pages of the PDF can be in­cluded and not all pages of the PDF need have over­layed text. It’s also pos­si­ble to in­clude text be­tween pages of the PDF.
The pack­age’s Cat­a­logue en­try can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/pdfover­lay The pack­age’s files them­selves can be in­spected at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/pdfover­lay/

pdfover­lay – A style for over­lay­ing text on a PDF

It is of­ten de­sir­able to take an ex­isit­ing PDF and eas­ily add an­no­ta­tions or text over­lay­ing the PDF. This might arise if you wish to add com­ments to a PDF, fill in a PDF form, or add text to a PDF where space has been left for notes.

This pack­age pro­vides a sim­ple in­ter­face to do this with­out hav­ing to re­sort to in­sert­ing one page at a time. Some or all of the pages of the PDF can be in­cluded and not all pages of the PDF need have over­layed text. It is also pos­si­ble to in­clude text be­tween pages of the PDF.

Another ad­van­tage of this pack­age is that the over­layed text can be set as nor­mal flow­ing from one page to an­other or with man­ual page breaks if you wish. It is also pos­si­ble to use any stan­dard method to po­si­tion text at ar­bi­trary places on a given page.

This pack­age de­pends on xparse, ev­ery­page, and pdf­pages.
