TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Ultimately, PDF Watermark Creator was buggy and inconsistent, so I went
back to Acrobat. My original problem was that, even with a GB of RAM,
Acrobat 6 takes a long time to place the watermark. It also dramatically
increases the file size.
According to Adobe's site, Acrobat 8 Standard allows watermarking. But
does it do it any faster, and without bloating the file?
I think those questions are too subjective to ask Adobe, but I'd be
happy to get input from Acrobat 8 users on this list.
Alternatively, if someone has used a watermarker other than PDF
Watermark Creator, please let me know!
