Some printers have this option within their software, short of
printing/exporting to PDF or and using Adobe Acrobat to add a watermark, no
not directly within IV

I suppose you could edit the title block and insert an image but I'm afraid what it would do to the file size...

I've used a bitmap image in my titleblock in the past and I wouldn't recommend it. It's troublesome if the image changes or if it becomes unlinked. Every IDW will ask for the bitmap file location.

For watermarks I suggest using a sketched symbol with light grey text or an image not a separate file.

Hope this helps!
