You can use the watermark option to print text "underneath" (in the background) of an
existing document. For example, you might want to have large gray letters reading Draft or
Confidential printed diagonally across the first page or all of the pages of a document.
1. From your software application, access the printer Properties (or Printing Preferences in
Windows 2000 and XP). See
Printer Properties (driver)
2. On the Effects tab (the Watermark/Overlay tab for some Mac drivers), select the
watermark you want to use.
Not all printer features are available in all drivers or operating systems. See the printer
Properties (driver) online Help for information about availability of features for that driver.
