Often, only a simple grey text watermark is used to mark a document as draft or
review version.
So far, the user has to create a image (e.g. with OOo draw), export it into a
file and add it to the document. This is a rather annoying process.
It would be nice, to simply create the text via a dialog , assign a style to it
(to assign font, colour etc.) and use it as a watermark.

Text watermarks would be a very useful feature to mark all or a sort of pages as
drafts or something else quickly.

How high is the technical effort to make this possible?

Or is it possible to repeat a text frame on all/several pages to "emulate" a

Keyword: ms_interoperability?

(I would vote for this issue, but my spare votes are lost in other old issues.)
