Lines not displaying in front of watermark

Lines not displaying in front of watermark

Lines not displaying in front of watermark

I am using CR 8.5.

I put a watermark on my report by inserting the image into the page header, then underlaying the section.  The text displays with the image in the background which is great except that the lines in the details section are not displaying.  Once the lines reach the image, the lines disappear behind the image.

I know that there is not a transparency issue with the image because the text displays fine in front of the image.  The image is taking precedence over the lines and I cannot force the lines to be in front of the image.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.


RE: Lines not displaying in front of watermark

Graphic objects are handled differently than text based objects in Crystal, and there is no control over this behavior.  

The only workaround I have found is to create an Empty Text object, and give it a single top border (ie a line).  This can be brought to the front, above the image and used to create a line effect (albeit not as flexible as a true line).
