Image Watermark are not working in (Doc ID 2803659.1)

Enabled the PDFWatermark component and configured an image watermark template to be applied to PDFs as described in the below online documentation.

Add or Edit an Image Watermark


However, when the webviewable is opened, the image watermark isn't displayed as expected.  The exact same configuration was setup in previous versions (e.g., - and it works as expected.

In, it was observed that a scale factor of 1 displays the image watermark.  The image watermark was displayed the same way as using scale factor of 100 (default value when creating an image template) in previous versions (i.e., same image size). 

It was also observed that setting scale factor of 50 in previous versions reduces the size of image watermark as expected.  This is described in the above online documentation.

Optionally specify a Scale Factor to preserve or modify the size of the image when it is used as a watermark. Without specifying a scale factor, images are rendered at 72 dpi.

The Scale Factor is expressed as a percentage based on the following formula: default_dpi /image_dpi *100%. For example, to maintain the size and resolution of a 300 dpi image, you calculate the Scale Factor as follows: 72 dpi /300 dpi *100% =24% for a Scale Factor of 24.

Tried setting it to 0.5 to see if this would provide the same size as scale factor of 50 in previous versions, but the image size remains the same size and is displayed in different part of the document.  Tried different values like 0.2, 0.7, and 2 and verified the image watermark remains same size but displayed in different part of the document.  Larger scale factor values (e.g., 5 and higher) caused the image to not display in PDF.
