Date: May 5, 2009 7:51:33 AM CEST
This package has been installed at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your favorite mirror. Thanks again, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College ............................................................................. The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: draftmark Author's name: Ahmed Musa Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/draftmark Summary description: Put draftmarks on select pages intelligently License type: nocommercial Announcement text:
This package puts a user-specified draftmark on pages of documents. It is more general than the package 'draftwatermark' by Sergio Callegari. The advantages of this package over 'draftwatermark' include: the user can specify his own draftmark and color, the draftmark position, the page (all pages, odd pages, even pages, a particular page number, and a range of pages) on which the draftmark should appear, and all the options are passed directly to package instead of being defined by macros. There is also the provision to use the macro \draftmarksetup, which can be used to specify draftmark properties for each page or range of pages. With the 'xcolor' package (loaded by this package), all colors (including 'white', shades like 'red!75!green!50', and those defined within the user document) can be passed to this package. The code of this package is very much shorter than that of the 'draftcopy' package by Jurgen Vollmer (2002) because it capitalizes on some dvi 'hook' packages that have become available in recent years (post 2002).
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/draftmark . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/draftmark (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

draftmark – Put draft marks on selected pages

The package can place selected ‘watermarks’ on a selection of pages. The user may specify content, colour, position and orientation for each watermark.

The package makes use of the atbegshi package.
