        // but for testing reasons (connected to parallelization) we call constructor here
        Document doc = new Document(pdfDoc, new PageSize(PageSize.A4).rotate());

        Table table = new Table(5);
        Cell cell = new Cell(1, 5).add("Table XYZ (Continued)");
        cell = new Cell(1, 5).add("Continue on next page");
        for (int i = 0; i < 350; i++) {
            table.addCell(String.valueOf(i + 1));
