    Removing of watermarks in pdf

    I would like to remove watermark from a pdf document. It is possible in Windows with Nitro pdf. But I would like to do it in my Ubuntu Desktop. My OS is Ubuntu 20.04.

    LibreOffice Draw can edit PDFs with multiple pages.

    Depends on how the watermark was added...

    You should try xournal for editing PDFs.

    Thanks for your reply. However, it was really possible earlier through Libre Office Draw. But nowadays though watermark can be removed through Libre Office Draw but it disarranged or jumbled all the text. That is the reason why I'm searching for other possible ways and means.

    I would think it's not possible ,depending on how the watermark was created. I mean a watermark is added for a reason .
    Anyway did some googling (cause i'm curious) ,and found this that looks promising.
    Hope it'll help

    Re: Removing of watermarks in pdf

    Have you tried opening the PDF in the GIMP ("GNU Image Manipulation Program")? It imports a PDF as a set of layers. I don't know anything about the watermarking technology, but maybe it's just a transparent layer? If so you can delete it and re-export the file as a PDF.
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Thanks. I have tried it before raising this thread here, but in vain.

    Re: Removing of watermarks in pdf

    Where did the watermark come from and why is the documemnt watermarked?
    Who created the PDF and with which application?

    PDFs are sometimes created to ensure that they can not be edited further once sent to another person, and the watermark may be present to inform the recipient of copyright.
