Re: Can I create watermarks in PDF with the toolkit ??

Chaseonho,

 

I myself am new to using Toolkit (we just purchased it), so I cannot answer if Toolkit has a watermark API/capability.  However, there are other options for creating watermarks on PDF's.

 

You can use a tool like PDF TK (https://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/) to manipulate the PDF after it is created.  You can write your PTC Toolkit program to:

  1. generate the PDF from Creo Parametric placing it in a temporary directory
  2. add the watermark to the PDF via the PDF TK commands
  3. move the PDF to its final destination

We do this already, without using PTC's toolkit, via a series of mapkeys and AutoIT scripts.

There are other PDF manipulation program available, but for us, PDF TK was approved for use already (and it's free).

 

Regards,

Dan N.
