5. Why can’t I remove the watermark?

Sometimes, when you click “Remove”, it will prompt you that no watermark was found. What happened? The following are possible situations where there is a “watermark” that cannot be removed.
The key reason for this situation is the “watermark” is not added through the watermark feature – no watermark parameters
1. Some “watermarks” may be disguised as to watermark mode by adding text or PNG images. In this case, you can click “Edit” to delete the content.
2. Some files with watermarks actually are scanned and converted to PDF format. The originals of these scans have watermarks, so after scanning into a PDF file, it will also have “watermarks”. This kind of “watermarks” cannot be removed.
