MS Word (2010) Watermark appearing only on portable devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Morning all,

    I'm experiencing an odd problem with a batch of documents that my colleagues have recently created.  A few Word Documents (created in W2007, edited in W2010) when viewed via SharePoint and client desktops appear normal.

    However, when a document is viewed via a portable device (such as an iPhone or an iPad) a clear watermark is evident.  I've checked: -

    1. Checking the watermark settings under Page Layout (produced nothing)
    2. Checking the watermark settings within my printer set-up (also nothing)
    3. Checked the macros (also nothing)
    4. Check if a cover page had been set (also nothing)

    I'm not aware of any reason why a watermark would only appear on portable devices, so any ideas would be appreciated.

    Many thanks,

  • HI,

    First, check to see whether the issue occurs when the document is created in Word 2010 instead of Word 2007.

    If Word 2010 documents also have the watermark then what is the watermark? Just a guess, is it any chances that Iphone or Ipad add the watermark automatically?
