I bought a slightly older version of Adobe Acrobat (it cost around $100), and it does this easily.
I use Acrobat so much that it was worth paying for (even if I didn't pay much).
Just last week I had to take a PDF form letter someone sent me and added check boxes and boxes to fill information directly into the PDF rather than have to print it out, fill it out, then re-scan it and re-send it.


Finale (started with ver. 3.0) using 2012 (2014 has been shelved for its lack of support for older Garritan libraries), putting Finale 25 through its paces.
Windows 8.1
basically ALL Garritan libraries, plus XSample Chamber Ensemble.

I found an inexpensive app for the iPad, called DocMark. Text only, and it automatically scales the size, but you input your own text and choose font, horizontal or diagonal, and degree of transparency.

Quite respectable, for $2!

Simple Entry, QWERTY keyboard, numberpad. That's my system, and I'm stickin' to it.

As far as I know, you'll have to convert the Finale file to PDF in order to have a transparent watermark. There is a free service that you can use. See example attached below.

I think most people do it post-Finale, applying a watermark with a PDF program.

Does anyone know how to have the word "draft" placed over the pages of choral music in a professional way in a diagonal?
