Using dynamic data in dynamic PDF watermarks
By Kyle Hatlestad on Sep 14, 2010
When using PDF Watermark, one of the nice features is to display some dynamic data as part of that watermark. This might be something like the current time the document was viewed/saved/printed, the user who was accessing the document, or perhaps the Content ID identifier so that you could later go back and easily reference that same document.
Unfortunately, the variables you use to display that dynamic data is not very clear in the documentation. Someone just pinged me about them so I thought I would share them here.
Here is a list of the environment or metadata variables you can include.
So for metadata, you basically just surround your field identifier with double dollar signs before and after it. So in the above screenshot, the Text for the watermark is:
Viewed: $TIME$ on $DATE$ - User: $USER$ - Content ID: $$dDocName$$
