(Legacy feature) Adding watermarks and banners to documents in the Brava viewer

IMPORTANT: This document describes an optional FileHold feature that is no longer available. It is retained for existing users only. See the FileHold Viewer for the latest viewing technology.

You can choose to set on-screen or printed banners and watermarks to your documents when assigned a Brava viewer license. Watermarks and banners only show when the document is viewed in print preview or is printed. Watermark and/or banner values will appear in the viewing window by adding them as Screen Watermarks or Screen Banners.

The watermark stretches from the lower left corner to the upper right corner of the viewing window. These settings are useful for displaying a document's classification to the viewer (e.g., proprietary, draft, etc.) and the values can differ from the values entered in the printed Watermark and banner location lines.

Print banners and watermarks can contain text strings or one of the available tag values:

  • %Date - Inserts the date the print was spooled. If the tags are viewed on screen, the date at which the screen was last refreshed displays.

  • %SysDatePlusDays(x) - Inserts a date the specified number of days past the system date. Replace "x" with the desired number of days. Negative numbers of days may be entered.

  • %Time - Inserts the time the print was spooled based on a 12 hour clock (AM/PM). If the tags are viewed on screen, the time on which the screen was last refreshed displays.

  • %MilTime - Inserts the time the print was spooled based on a 24 hour clock. Note that all of the date and time specific tokens above are based on the current UTC time.

  • %Title - Adds the name of the document.

  • %Page - Adds the page number.

  • %TotalPages - Inserts the total number of pages.

  • %BatesPgNo(x)-  Bates Number. This tag is used to indicate the starting page number and the number of digits to use. For example, %BatesPgNo(0002) would place 0002 on the first page, 0003 on the next page, etc.

  • %Login (or %User) - Specifies the user name of the person who issued the print.

  • %fhid - Adds the FileHold ID number which is a unique number given to each document in the repository.

  • %docno - Inserts the document control number.

  • %verno - Inserts the version control number.

  • %% - Inserts a single % character.

  • © - Inserts the copyright symbol.

  • ® - Inserts the registered trademark symbol.
