I get an error message when trying to create a watermark in my Adobe X Pro PDF

I am trying to add a watermark to my PDF, and I am getting the error message "An error was encountered while retrieving page content."

I am using Windows 7, and Adobe X Pro. I checked for updates, and both are up to date.

I can add the watermark on some PDF's, but not this one. Does it have to do with Java Script maybe? Please help!!

run ocr and recognise text ans save
after this add watermark.


You may have a corrupt PDF. If so there is little that you can do.
A thread at the Acrobat user-2-user forum discusses the possibility of repairing a damaged PDF.


n.b., If a PDF has renderable text (e.g., the PDF is the output from some authoring application) then one cannot 'OCR' the PDF.

Be well...
