Watermark Background

What?

More and more invoices are sent as a PDF to customers. One of the drawbacks when sending your invoices digitally is that you loose the look and feel of a stationery on a printed version. Not anymore! Since FileMaker 13 we can use an image as (watermark) background for your PDF version of a print. In that way the PDF and printed versions will look the same! Example export with watermark background:

How it works?

This technique makes use of FM13’s new capability to set an image as layout background. In older versions it was already possible to set an image as background for a layout part, but not for the entire layout. Now the image can break through the boundaries of the layout parts!
