How To Manage PDFs and DXFs in PDM

Hi all, my company got setup with PDM Pro about a year ago and I am looking for some insight as to how others manage their PDF and DXF files. Our company does mostly custom work with some repeat projects. Our PDM structure is to use a project number for assemblies (i.e. 18-001), and have all parts be serialized by PDM. For these repeat projects we use a new project number, but keep all parts the same as the original.

 

When PDFs are created we use a program to watermark them with a date, signature, and the project number for tracking purposes. I am now running into the situation where we are repeating a project under a new number, and I have existing PDFs in the vault with this watermark that has a different project number. I suppose the DXF isn't a huge issue since there is no number and I could just share it.

 

Have I just taken a completely wrong approach to this?
