Adding a watermark

Accountants Enterprise in Australia only

When you add a watermark to a report, the watermark will appear when you:

  • preview the selected report

  • print the selected report

  • export the report to PDF.

All watermark settings are saved and are then loaded whenever Reporter is launched. The settings are saved by ledger, therefore they are a ledger setting not a user setting.
