    Hi all,

    I'm using MapInfo Pro v2021 64 Bit. I am trying to work out how if it is possible to apply a Watermark over the layout screen? As I want to have 'DRAFT' written on the PDF layout. Therefore I have looked in the MapInfo PDF Printer Version 2021 'Watermark' area and selected this function however when I print as PDF the watermark text does not appear? 

    EDIT: Managed to get a Watermark text showing which is good! All it was was making sure to increase the text size to a larger font as for some reason the standard default text size it uses when I did the layout did not show up / visible. Therefore that must the how to do it.

    Hi Richard
    Glad you git that working.
    Alternatively, you could use the Cosmetic Layer of the Map Window and plonk a huge text item over that. You can then adjust the translucency of the Cosmetic Layer to suit.

    Or use the Smart Text adornment added in MapInfo Pro v2021 to add a Smart Text adornment at the center of the map window.
