Perhaps there are times when you want to add a watermark to your SOLIDWORKS Drawing. Let’s say you want to have a “CONFIDENTIAL” stamp on your drawing. When you add a note to your drawing view you may notice that the note covers the drawing lines and dimensions as shown in the figure below:

This option instructs SOLIDWORKS to display the annotation note behind drawing objects.
