"We had similar issues. You needed to modify some wvs properties to republish on a state change.
I believe it is described in the Business Administration Guide under visualization.

WORKED LIEK A CHARM!!
Thank you very much. How can PTC tech support not know this?
Your solution sounds ideal for us – no Acrobat standard or product view required to see state watermark. I would love to implement this.
I have a few questions
Although we currently do embed “state" on our CAD drawings, and have learnt to live with the problems that causes personally I am in complete agreement with you and Mike Lockwood (Alcon).
When comparing now to yesteryear, I visualize lifecycle state in many ways as the PLM equivalent of applying an authorizing wet signature or ink stamp to a master printed copy of a document version….and one specific version
The viewable is our modern-day “non-editable” master printed copy. Reporting state in the CAD file is more a useful indicator that a process has been followed rather than proof.
As a company we make and buy to print (digital or paper) not CAD file. The viewable for us is therefore the resulting master output document and CAD is just a tool used to create it, so the viewable is what we should be signing….. Or rather state marking.
