We've had a few requests for this via support recently, so I thought it would be useful to share here how you can control the appearance of headers, footers and watermarks for AutoVue users when they print.
As a refresher - AutoVue allows the addition of headers, footers and/or watermarks when printing, and each of these can include attributes from the repository where the files are stored, such as approval status, when it was last modified, etc.
Under normal conditions, the user can set each of these interactively when printing a document.
However, there are INI options that can be set server-wide to provide defaults for each of these, *and* the user can be disallowed from changing these settings in cases where every document that is printed must have standard information added to them.
More information about the INI options to set up headers, footers and watermarks can be found in sections 9.8 and 9.9 of the Viewing/Configuration Guide (the 20.2.3 version can be found here: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E60531_03/otn/pdf/E60462_01.pdf )
The key is that after you have set up the headers, footers and watermarks to contain the information you want them to, you can add "DISABLEWATERMARKS=1" and/or "DISABLEHEADERS=1" to the "[PRINTOPTIONS]" section of the allusers.ini file.
Note that 'DISABLEHEADERS' actually disables both headers and footers.
