Creating and using watermarks

Creating and using watermarks

Use the Watermark options to specify that text be placed “underneath” (in the background of) an existing document. For example, you might want to have large gray letters reading “draft” or “confidential” placed diagonally across the first page or all pages of a document. You can change color, position, and wording of the watermark.

Gain access to the Watermark options on the Effects tab in your printer driver.


If you are using Windows 2000 or XP, you must have Administrator privileges to create watermarks. You do not need Administrator privileges to add existing watermarks to documents.
