Several companies, online guides, tutorial and E-books creators are using Watermark feature to sign the files to claim that the records contain copyright content.

Removing the Watermark

Now you are set to remove the Watermark from the PDF File. Watermarks come in different types such as Logo, Text, Image, Signature, and much more. However, there is one weak point of all Watermarks, and that is they are not a digital signature to be removed. Office open consider these watermarks as media files like interlaced images and texts. You can now use the program to remove them as media files, which makes the task easier.

Step 1: Open the PDF file with the watermark on it.


Step 2: In my case, the text has been used as an interlaced watermark.

Step 3: They are in different shape and different size formats. You have to remove it one y one. So the real difficulty is to identify the text location.

Step 4: You have to select that area by just clicking once on it and remove it.

Step 5: Keep on repeating the process until you eliminate the Watermark from the PDF File.

Note: Once the Watermark is selected click on “Back Button” or you can “Cut” the file.

In case, if the watermark format is different such as Image then all you have to do is to click all areas surrounding the watermark. Remember, it would take more than just a few clicks to track the media file. You have to keep repeating the process until you have the file selected and then cut it or click on “Back button

The Open Office and the PDF Extension are free to use and you don’t have to pay for the license and you can also use them for another office purpose.


I appreciate Office Open for providing such a tremendous option to the user for free of charge. There aren’t many options available, where you get to remove the watermark for free. Share if you have any other solution and your experiences in the comment section below.
