I'm using RoboHelp HTML 9 and I have a separate cover that I insert for the printed output.
I created the cover using Microsoft Word 2010 (on Windows 7) and used the Page Layout > Watermark feature to insert a diagonal DRAFT notification.
When I generated my printed documentation, the cover doesn't show the watermark.
I tried using both a .doc and a .docx version of the cover page, and producing .doc and then .docx versions of the output. I still don't see the DRAFT on the cover page.
Ideally I should have a way to make a DRAFT watermark for both my printed and HTMLHelp outputs, but I thought this would be good enough for now.
If this isn't an option, is there a simple way to do what I want? (Mark a copy as draft so that someone doesn't find a printed copy lying around and think it's the final version.)
Your generated output is a document created by RoboHelp with your document inserted at the front, it's a bit of a mongrel and I'm not surprised the watermark in the cover doesn't survive the process.
Simple solution? Add it to the document created.
