Hello All,

I am a systems developer in the UK looking into a problem we have when inserting a watermark and border into a PDF file.

The code that is inserted for each page is:

.5 G
1 g
1 w
25 25 783 545 re
/F7 180 Tf
.95 g
.5 .3 -.5 .5 105 55 Tm
(Alliance Capital) Tj
0 g

This version works correctly in Acrobat 4.0 but when opening any document in any version above this.

The error we receive is an Illegal Operation 're' inside a text object. Which means to me that this expression does not exist anymore in later versions of Adobe to interpret correctly. Although if you click okay you can bypass the message and the report then does have the border and watermark.

Can someone please help or know of the correct command inside a text object to use.

Thanks in advance
