Google Docs Now Allows Users to Add Text Watermarks
Google Docs added the ability to apply picture watermarks in September of last year. The functionality made it simple for brands and enterprises to put their logos into documents. The ability to generate your own text watermarks within Google Docs has been added to the feature.
Add Text Watermarks to Documents in Google Docs
When you add a text watermark to a document, it will appear on every page. In official documents, the feature is ideal for adding the “Confidential” or “Draft” watermark. The best thing is that when you import or export Microsoft Word documents, your text watermarks are kept.
In Google Docs, go to Insert -> Watermark -> Text and type the text you want to use as a watermark. You can modify the font, tweak transparency and font color, bold or italicize the text, and position the watermark diagonally or horizontally. Take a look at the feature in action in the video below.
If you notice gaps in the watermark, Google says it could be due to the background color of the document content. You can remove the backdrop color of your text to show the complete watermark in the document as a solution. You can remove the watermark by right-clicking it and selecting “Select watermark.” Select “Remove watermark” from the side panel that appears now.
All Google Workspace clients, as well as G Suite Basic and Business subscribers, have the option to generate text watermarks. In the quick release and scheduled release domains, the feature is being gradually rolled out. The rapid release domain began rolling out on January 24, with the scheduled release domain following on February 14. Don’t worry if you don’t see it right away; it could take up to 15 days for the functionality to surface on your end.
