We’re looking into watermark and rotation issues. We’ll notify you when we have any information.

Okay.Thank you


To fix the block overlapping issue when rotating pages try updated version of viewer.js file viewer_js.zip (16.7 KB).

Please note that jQuery Viewer is not supported anymore and we encourage you to switch to Angular Viewer that is currently maintained and provides a better user experience.

Hi. Thank you for your support.

So is there possibility to get watermark issue fix or not.


You’re welcome. We’ll take a look at the issue with watermarks and update you.


We’ve reproduced the issue when watermark is added to a page. It happens because watermark styles have absolute positioning and as a result watermark styles breaks page layout. We’ve logged this issue in our internal system. The issue ID is VIEWERNET-3135. We’ll let you know if there any updates.
