Step 4: Add a watermark and adjust its properties

Open the Format Settings section in the Working Area by clicking the black arrow near it. Check the Watermark check-box. The text watermark will be applied to all the documents loaded into the program. You will be able to preview them in the Preview Area. Type your own text in the Text field and change its properties if needed.

Select the font-face from the Font drop-down list.

To adjust the font size select the needed value from the drop-down list or use the keyboard.

You can select between the Bold (B), Italic (I), Underline (U) or Strikeout (S) font styles using the appropriate buttons.

Specify the font color by selecting it from the drop-down list. By default your watermark will be placed diagonally from the left lower corner to the right upper corner of the document page.

To change the text opacity use the Opacity slider or enter the needed value in the field near it using the keyboard. The more this value is the less is the watermark transparency. If you want to delete the added watermark before converting documents uncheck the Watermark check-box.
