Watermarks - "Placed on .."

Post by Peter2 » Thu Mar 19, 2020 2:20 pm

The "Edit Watermark" has an option called "Placed on:" with "All / first / last / even / odd pages". I want to ask for an option "everywhere except first page".

Does it look helpful to you too?

Hi, Peter2

Our page ranges function can accomplish this, simply enter 2- in the page range, and it will apply the watermark to all pages form 2 and up, like so:

I hope this helps!

Hi Daniel

now I'm confused - your dialogue is different from mine (PDF-Printer and PDF-Addin for Word; 8.336)

Hi, Peter2

My apologies there, The dialog that I sent a screenshot of was from the Editor, I was unaware you were looking at the Printer specifically. Currently there is no method to accomplish this, but I will ask the Dev team to update this menu so that it has the same functions as the Editor does for you.
Until then, the best method to apply your watermarks would be to open them in the Editor after printing and apply your watermark as per my earlier screenshot.

Kind regards,

Hi, Peter2

I have just discussed this with our Dev team and learned something new, The dropdown field itself in the standard printer can be typed into directly. so you can actually type 2- just like in the Editor, and it will apply to page 2 and up as I described before! Like so:

Thanks for clarification, but nevertheless the usability could be enhanced a little bit :wink:

Have a good time!
