    I tested this just now, printing this page as PDF from Edge, using Windows native Microsoft Print to PDF. No watermark, here's the PDF to check: Test.pdf

    Of course if you are using a trial version of a paid for product, that would explain watermarks.

    I also did the same page. No watermark. But when I printed a part of an E-Paper page, I got water mark on print page.

    What does the watermark say? Could you please post a screenshot of it?

    The watermark says quite clearly "Not for sale".

    I am not sure if that is from the PressReader site, which usually allows printing (even PDF) only when you pay for it, or if the PDF you attached is created with a trial / free version of a third party PDF writer.

    Normal PDF printing from Edge does not add watermark. No issues there.

    I think it's a watermark from the site.

    The press reader is used by Singapore Govt Library to display EPapers. I tried printing from it. But this does not happen if I use firefox for the same site.
