So on the documentation for draftwatermark, the author claims that: The draftwatermark package extends LATEX providing a means to add a watermark (typically textual and light gray, but possibly more sophisticated) on the pages of a document (either on every page, on the first page, or on selected pages)

But I seem not be able to find the means to do that. What command should I use to apply watermark to say the 6th page only?

  • Would you be willing to switch from draftwatermark to draftmark? With the latter package, you could easily use the following example to just get a watermark on page 6 only: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{blindtext} \usepackage[draft, pages=6-6]{draftmark} \draftmarksetup{mark=text} \begin{document} \blinddocument \blinddocument \blinddocument \end{document}

  • Good to know, is it better than drafts watermark

Here is a suggestion using draftmark instead of draftwatermark. Since you also mentioned "more sophisticated" watermarks, this package could also come in handy. A simple MWE could look like the following:

The draftmark package also offers the following options to control the placement of the water mark text: allpages, firstpage, oddpages, evenpages , page=x (with x=page number of a single page) and pages=x-y (with x= start and y= end of the page range).

\usepackage[draft, page=6]{draftmark}
