Description genedsmith 2003-10-29 00:12:29 UTC
I put a watermark on a 3 page document. When I Page Preview it, the watermark is
not on 1st page and this is ok. I see it on the 2nd page as 10% Gray. I see it
the same on the 3rd page.  

When I print the document, the water mark is dark BLACK (not gray) on the 2nd
page and nonexistant on the 3rd page.

The document was derived from a word document but saved many times as .swx
before the watermark addition was attempted. The original word document had no

I can provide the document if there is interest.

Sorry, I should have said: The document was derived from a word
document but modified and saved many times as .sxw before the
watermark addition was attempted.

Additional info: When I export the document to pdf and print it I see
the watermarks on page 2 and 3 as expected and they print as expected.
However, the 10% gray watermark setting prints *much* lighter than it
appears on the screen (probably not a big deal).

This "watermark" is a textbox that´s been inserted into the header but
larger than the header borders, by this covering the background of
each page except the first page (whose page style is "First page"). 

So it´s not a watermark in the sense of the Help text, which is a
graphic inserted via > Format > Page > Background > Graphic etc.

Can confirm that the textbox isn´t printed on third page although it
shows in page preview. This is described in Issue 16138, therefore
this Issue will be closed as duplicate.

FYI, I used the simpler method described the book "Taming OpenOffice"
to insert a "watermark."

Perhaps I should repeat that the "watermark" on page 2 prints dark
black (and not at 10% gray) in native OO format, but ok on export to
pdf. This does not seem to be mentioned in (now duplicate) issue
16138, nor does 16138 mention anything about printing or page preview
for that matter.
