In this lesson we'll show you some of the improvements made to the watermark and margins functionality in Adobe Acrobat

Another thing that I would like to do with a document is add a watermark or a header and a footer, and that is something that I can do in Acrobat 7. But, I am going to open a file now by choosing file open. It is in the lesson 2 folder so I will navigate my way there. And the file is called proposal finished. We will open it up. It has a watermark. And, I want to update the watermark because I do not want it to say confidential, I want it to say something else. With Adobe Acrobat 8 now, I can select document, watermark, and I have two choices that I did not have before, update and remove. So, I can simply remove the watermark or in this case, I can update the watermark and change it so that it does not say “confidential” but it says “secret”. And the preview works a lot more quickly so that I can see the results of what I am doing. Otherwise, watermark works pretty much the same way.
There is one more option under header and footer that I want to point out and I will select cancel. I am not going the change this watermark here. I will choose file open, I am going to open the R5 proposal and I am going to choose document, header and footer, add. And I am not going to go to the entire process of adding a header and footer but I want to point that if I were to do so, it would probably crash with this text here. I have a new appearance options here that I can take advantage of that allow me to shrink the document to avoid overriding the document’s text and graphics. What that will simply do is shrink the documents so that it fits within the margins that I have chosen here. I am going to hit cancel. Now, I will actually put this away. It will shrink everything proportionally and it will leave me room for the header and footer information so that it does not look quite so awkward as it might have before.
