We are going to be scanning checks into docuware and would like a watermark on the check so they can not be printed and reused 

Is a watermark possible and how this be done.

thanks

DocuWare WebScan creates a PDF of the document - basically an image encapsulated in a PDF. There is no function in DocuWare to add a watermark. What is possible, is that after the document is delivered to a web tray, a stamp can be applied and merged with the document so that it is a permanent part of the document and cannot be removed. Unfortunately, this is a manual process and cannot be automated. Automation of this can be developed with the Platform SDK by a programmer.

Keith,

you could add a predefined image to your checks by configuring Form/Letterhead tab to an import configuration to be used with Docuware scanner, or if you use a different way to scan, such as scan to a folder, the import configuration to be used with an Import Job.

The image from letterhead could be made 'transparent' - this would be pretty much close to a watermark

Josef,
Perfect. I did not even consider that. Nicely automated too.

Josefs method will create a new document with the overlay an indelible part of the document.
My methos IS an annotation but you must MERGE the annotation with the document to make it also an indelible part of the document. If you do not merge then yes, it would be able to be printed without the annotation.
Josef's method is fully automated and is not subject to someone forgetting to merge the annotation.
