Insert watermark

Whether secret files, confidential or just a text draft, there is often the desire to mark documents accordingly with a watermark.

With LibreOffice, digital watermarks can be created as text on the computer.

Insert text as a watermark

We open Writer.

In the menu we choose Format ▸ Watermarks ....

The dialog box "Watermark" appears.

In the field for the text we write "CONFIDENTIAL".

In the field "Font" we select the font "GOOD TIMES".

The other specifications for "Angle = 45 °", "Transparency = 50%" and "Color = # C0C0C0" can be retained or changed as desired.

We click on OK.

Sample page with text "VERTRAULICH" [DE] = ("CONFIDENTIAL").

The word "CONFIDENTIAL" is then also displayed on all subsequent pages.

Possible texts as watermarks

Instead of the above-mentioned text CONFIDENTIAL any other text and any other font can be used.
