Incorporation of watermarks into PDF documents
iQ.Suite Tips & Tricks for IBM Domino
Since the release of iQ.Suite13.2, you are able to convert documentsinto PDF upon sending automatically, using the Convert module. Additional parameters (also view: "iQ.SuiteConvert: PDF-converter"), allow you to also integrate a watermark into thesePDF documents.
Step By Step
In order to administer theConvert module, you will need the "new administration console" (see commentsfor installation).
Open the new administrationconsole
Create a new job:
Mark "Job" (in the paragraphConvert) and then select "New: Convert PDF Job"
Assign a name and a job priority
Determine the conditions, underwhich the job is to be implemented, via the "General" tab, using the mail rules(managed in the previous administration console).
Switch to the "Selection" tab
Select the desired file type foryour conversion (types, such as executable files, compressed files or PDFdocuments cannot be converted usefully).
Now switch to the "Operations"tab
To determine the execution modefor the conversion, add the following parameters:
1.) ENABLEWATERMARK TRUE
Watermarks are printed on every page.
thecomplete physical path and name of the image that is to be used as a watermark.
Save the job.
The job will be listed as usualin the old administration console.
Now you can create an email.
The original Excel file has beenconverted to PDF format.

1.) A new administration console (Notes Client 8.0.2 or higher necessary)
1.1) Upgrading the Notes Client
In order to be able to use the administration console, the Notes-Client has to be ugraded by the iQ.Suite-Widget. Knowledge in how to use Widgets (Window objects) is required.
1.2) Administrator page
1. Install iQ.Suite. Please note that the new administration console is only available starting at version 12.3.
2. Ensure that the file admin_frontend.xml and the data base g_update.nsf are contained in iQ.Suite’s data directory on the Dominoserver, in <update>.
sind. The database contains the client extensions (Plug-ins), while the XML file defines the storage location of the database.
To display the Notes area ‘My Widgets’, the toolbar for Widgets has to be shown Which settings are required for this within the Notes-Client, depends on the Client version.
The setting for the Notes-Client 8.0.2 can be found at: File -> Defaults ->
‚Widgets’ -> Control box: display the tool bar for window objects and side bar window ‘My Window Objects’
1.3. Integrate the fileadmin_frontend.xml into the Notes-Client.
a) Select'open' in the classic administrator console and then the Widgetdistribution button.
b) Check, whether the icon of the iQ.Suite Widget is available byclicking on 'test' in image/picture.
The icon's only purpose is to distinguish the iQ.Suite Widget from otherwidgets, but it does not affect its functionality.
> If the correct server is entered into the server address (HTTP),the iQ.Suite Widget icon is going to be displayed in the browser: The pre-setvalue, or values, are determined depending on the information of the notesaddress book.
> If an incorrect server is entered for server address (HTTP), pleaseenter the server from which the iQ.Suite Widgets will be accessed manually. Onthis server, the HTTP server task must be run.
c) Check, whether the correct server is entered in the server address(NRPC). From this server, the XML file admin_frontend.xml of the iQ.SuiteWidget is accessed. The NRPC server task must be run from this server.
d) In order for all changes of the server address (HTTP) and/or serveraddress (NRPC) are adopted into the XML file admin_frontend.xml, click on theREFRESH WIDGET button.
The iQ.Suite Widget is refreshed.
1.4. Drag & drop the XML file admin_frontend.xml into the side barwindow 'My Widgets'. The components are installed and the Notes-Client isrestarted. This may take a few seconds.
1.5. Click DEFAULTS ('PREFERENCES') -> IQ.SUITE -> CONFIGURATION
1.6. Check thefollowing information:
a) Server name(‚Common Name') or IP address of the Domino server are stored correctly.
b) The serverrefers you to the correct iQ.Suite data directory.
1.7. IfiQ.Suite is installed on multiple servers, you can
switch back and forth betweenthese servers using the new administration console:
If necessary, define additionalservers using ADD.
2.) Thesimpler and "smaller" the file format of the image is, the better the convertercan process and use it as a watermark.
