[Solved] Watermark-name has problems with single letters

If you define a watermark with a name only with one letter like "A" or "b" it will be accepted by the software - but not used to print. The option "use this watermark" can be enabled "X", but after "OK" the setting is erased and watermark "A" is not used.

I create many single-page PDFs which are later merged, and I want a "dynamic" bookmark: One (1) bookmark per page (1 page = 1 file), but the bookmark is not the title and has to be user-defined like metadata or watermark.

The X/Y-Offset of watermarks offers some values - but there is no info about the coordinates. I suppose X starts on left side, but Y? Starts it on top ("top-down" like many raster images) or on bottom ("bottom-up" like many CAD).

Please add a co-ordinate plane.
