# Why does eso-pic turn off the Tikz text opacity? [closed]

Without eso-pic:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fullpage}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{tikz}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture, overlay]
\node[color=red,text opacity=0.25,rotate=45,font=\fontsize{150}{30}\selectfont]
at (current page.center) {Draft};
\end{tikzpicture}
watermark:
\end{document}


I get the opacity that I want:

But when I add eso-pic:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fullpage}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{eso-pic}
%            \ifnum\value{page}>1
\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture, overlay]
\node[color=red,text opacity=0.1,rotate=45,font=\fontsize{150}{30}\selectfont]
at (current page.center) {Draft};
\end{tikzpicture}
%            \fi
}
\begin{document}
watermark:
\end{document}


I seem to lose the opacity from Tikz:

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

• Seems fine to me. What distribution are you using? and Package versions? – azetina May 2 '14 at 20:53
• @azetina oh, i'm working on a controlled system, so unfortunately i can't update the package. i'm not positive how to tell what distribution i have but MiKTeX doesn't show up in the log file. two things in my log file report as configurations of TeXLive, so i presume i have that. – aeroNotAuto May 2 '14 at 21:06
• You can probably download the packages independently and place them where you are compiling or try sharelatex.com. – azetina May 2 '14 at 21:12
• @azetina it looks fine on sharelatex.com, so i guess i'll have to try installing locally – aeroNotAuto May 2 '14 at 21:25
• By the way, the background package already offers the functionality in your example. All you need is \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fullpage} \usepackage{lmodern} \usepackage[angle=45]{background} \begin{document} watermark: \end{document} (compile twice). – Gonzalo Medina May 3 '14 at 0:36
