Watermark Profiles

Watermark profiles allow you to save custom watermark settings as templates that can be used again later to add watermarks to documents. There is also an option available to "Show on Menu" and when this is set for the profile it will be put under Document > Watermarks so that the profile can be run in just two clicks from the document menu.

Note: You do not need to create or save a watermark configuration before adding a watermark to a document. To add a watermark to a document without saving settings just go to Document > Watermark > Add and choose the settings to use and click Apply to run the watermark settings without saving a profile.
