PDF Watermark based on state (Add-in)

Hi All,


I was wondering if anyone did manage to create a macro, EPDM Add-in, or java script for a PDF file, which would create dynamic watermark based on a file state or maybe a Variable value?

To be clear, I am nor looking for solutions for SolidWorks documents but PDFs.


For example, I do have a massive amount of documents which have to be approved externally, and they are all PDFs. Each of the documents has multiple level approval. For documents which are not in the approved state, I would like to display a WATERMARK, i.e. "Submitted to the customer for approval."

Hiding on approved documents is not an option, as the input in them is from all departments and draft copies are preview in a shopfloor. I just want to eliminate the possibility of using a wrong document on the shop floor.


Please let me know if there is any solution to my problem,
