Docx converted to pdf: problem with creating watermark


I’ve used Aspose Words 15.8.0 to convert the attached file Doc1.docx in attached file Doc2.pdf with the code below:

public static void convertWordToPDF(File directory, String inputDocFileName, String outputPdfFileName, Properties properties) throws Exception {

try {

File fileDocInput = new File(directory, inputDocFileName);

File filePdfOutput = new File(directory, outputPdfFileName);

// Ouverture du document et enregistrement en PDF

com.aspose.words.Document doc = new com.aspose.words.Document(fileDocInput.getAbsolutePath());

doc.save(filePdfOutput.getAbsolutePath(), SaveFormat.PDF);

// Suppression du fichier doc d’origine


} catch (Exception e) {

Log.getLogger().error(“AsposeUtils.convertWordToPDF”, e);



I need to create a watermark in Doc2.pdf: I use Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro to open Doc2.pdf, and try to add a watermark, but an Acrobat error occured and I cannot make anything…

I’ve made another test: I open Doc1.docx with Microsoft Word and save it in pdf (attached file Doc3.pdf). In this case the conversion from docx to pdf is made with Acrobat PDF maker. You can see that I can easily create a watermark in Doc3.pdf with Acrobat 9…

What is the problem with the converted pdf with Aspose?

Thank you for your help,
