Watermark opacity not consistent

4 posts in this topic

I'm having a few issues with PDFelement, and a few are concerning the watermark feature. I created a watermark and saved it, yet when I load it the parameters are different than the ones I saved. The saved name doesn't come up, only "[Custom - Not Saved]." When using the feature, the program is often "not responding." Also, when I do add a watermark, the opacity I set is consistent for the first 30 or so pages, then it has the least amount of opacity, i.e. the darkest it can be. If I go to that page and update the watermark, it works...for about 30 pages. I wish it would work properly and have consistency for all of the pages when "all" is selected. Is there an update that could fix this?

Thank you.

Hey JKHP, 


Which version of PDFelement are you using? And could you give the specifications of your watermark? (eg. sizes, specific file)


I was using a text watermark and was able to save it and name it and use it in other documents with no trouble. I have attached a few screenshots, please let me know if it shows up differently for you.

We solved it! He was using a PDF for the watermark image. A PNG file works much better.
