from the info center:
Search order of library list
It is essential that you understand how your i5/OST system searches for Advanced Function Presentation resources.

When you create a spooled file, the operating system saves the libraries in your library list. Within that list are the libraries that contain the resources used to create the spooled file.

When specifying an overlay, page definition, or page segment, you need to include the library that contains the resource in your library list. If you have more than one overlay, page definition, or page segment with the same name, make sure the one you want to use is in the first library searched. Otherwise, you might specify the correct name, but get the wrong resource in your output.
If you have a resource that you want many users access (fonts, for example), you might put that resource in a library that everyone can access. For example, you could put it in a library identified in the system value QSYSLIBL.

And you're sure the overlay was created? No errors? And the cpyfrmpcd worked
correctly? Sounds like you're dealing with the old version of the overlay.
Check the create date with a dspobjd.

Sorry. The original sets of signatures continue to work. Two new ones
won't work.

No program changes or anything.

It doesn't print sometime or never since you made the change? Does the old
copy still work?
