PDF Document Watermarking is not working

Hi,

I am reaching out to seek assistance regarding an issue we’ve encountered while using GroupDocs.Watermark for .NET.

We’re currently converting a watermarked docx file to a pdf file. We’ve successfully converted it to pdf and all watermarks are carried over. Upon uploading it to google drive and viewing it using google docs, all watermarks are gone. We’ve tried viewing the converted file to another 3rd party application and all watermarks are visible. Is this an issue on applying watermark to a document that is easily removed by the google docs? Do you have workaround on this?

Could you please share the resultant file? We’ll test that at our end.

Hi,

Thanks for the response. I’ve attached the file.

@edecastro

We can view the watermark. Please take a look at this image (72.8 KB) and this image.
How you are converting the Word file with watermarks to PDF?

@atir.tahir

We converted the Word file to pdf by these steps:

  1. Open the Word file using MS Office Word App
  2. Select “Save As” and the select the pdf format.

And for the viewing of the converted file, we opened via GoogleDocs, see attached image:

Is this text Filam Software Property your watermark? It’s still visible when we open the document in Google Docs (we shared screenshot earlier).
