Why not just add a banner to the page where you have to accept the NDA, saying that all docs are reproduced with permission from the owners?Â That way any reader knows the docs are legal even if you don't change anything on the docs themselves.Â No point in having to open and change all the documents if you don't have to.Â But if you do want to, I'd just change the footers to read "Reproduced by Permission."Â

And what would I put in the watermark?
The entire portfolio requires a click to accept the NDA, so Iâm fine there. But I donât want people thinking that I posted confidential info when I didn't.
