Thanks for your inquiry. Watermark in MS Word is a simple shape inserted into the header. However, you can indentify this shape in order to get/set its properties. You can use Shape.Name to achieve this because when you insert a watermark in MS Word, it sets name of shape like this – “PowerPlusWaterMarkObject357476642”. So if the name of shape contains “WaterMark” substring, you can suppose that this shape is a watermark.
So you can use code like the following to get a watermark shape:
// Open document.
Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\watermark.docx");
// Get all shapes formthe document.
NodeCollection <Shape> shapes = doc.getChildNodes(NodeType.SHAPE, true);
// Look for watermark shape.
for (Shape shape: shapes)
// Here you can access watermark shape properties.
// For exampel printe text of the watermark.
Hope this helps.
