I am using a text watermark with a saved setting. The size is set to 18 in the saved setting. Each and every time I Add Watermark, though, I have to reenter the 18 in the size or it comes out much larger than that. I had this problem in Acrobat 9 Pro (Windows). I just upgraded to Acrobat XI Pro (Windows), and I'm seeing the same issue here. Is this typical for watermarks? Is there some workaround? Thanks!
Thanks for the reply... I checked and the "Scale relative to target page" checkbox is indeed unchecked, as is the similar checkbox under Appearance Options. Another user suggested that checking and unchecking the "Scale relative to target page" checkbox would get Acrobat to acknowledge the Size setting that appears in the Source block, and that works. While I don't think this step should be necessary, it's much quicker and less error prone than resetting the size every time I add the text watermark. Thanks again for the help.
Having the same issue on Acrobat Pro v 10.1.7 with Windows 7. We are trying to save a watermark setting with Arial 16pt font. This is what we have done:
Another user suggested to check the 'Scale relative target page' with 100% when we are saving our watermark settings. This only made the text size large and cleared our font size setting. When we went to select our font size this cleared the 'scale relative to target page' checkbox - We can only have one option or the other.
Does anyone know if Adobe is actively trying to correct this issue? Anything else I can try? Otherwise will keep using our workaround.
FYI: I submitted a bug report to Adobe for the Acrobat XI Pro (Windows) version that I am using. During the next Acrobat update (now at 11.0.3), the problem seems to have been resolved and now works as expected! I know this doesn't help with your version, but perhaps you can try a bug report as well?
