The Endorsements feature allows you to add custom text to the header and/or footer of every PDF file created.
Endorsements are the placing of additional header and footer information at the top and bottom of each page. Headers and footers can contain text such as titles, disclaimers and page numbers.
This tutorial demonstrates how to add the text “Internal Use Only – Confidential” at the bottom middle of every page, in Times New Roman at 10 point, red and bolded when using PDF Image Printer
You can control the following in Endorsements:
- height and width of each section which can be entered in English (inches), Metric (centimeters) or Points (points)
- font color, size and style such as bold/italic/underline/strike through
- page numbering displayed in the header/footer
Default height, font and color used for the text is 12 point Arial black.
Steps to Place Text in the Center of Each Page Footer:
- Open Printing Preferences (Start – Devices and Printers – Right click PDF Image Printer 11.0 – Printing Preferences)
Click Endorsements tab.
- Click to “Enable endorsements”.
In Style, select “Page Footer Center”. NOTE: For both Header and Footer, you can place text in the left, center and right of each page
Add the following endorsement text string into the Text field:
&KFF0000&'Times New Romain'&10&BInternal Use Only&B – Confidential
The Endorsements formatting codes we used here are as follows:
- &K to set the color of the text to red using the RGB color code FF0000.
- &’font name‘ to set the font to Times New Roman.
- &10 to set the font size to 10 points.
- &B to define the start and end positions of the endorsement string to be displayed in bold.
- Click Apply, then OK to save the information.
Now on the bottom center of each page will show Internal Use Only – Confidential.
Endorsements Formatting Codes can be found in the PDF Image Printer On-line User Guide and then scroll down to Header and Footer Formatting Codes.
