Ok thanks. I tried that. It worked. You need a form with a transparent
background which took a little work with gimp (
http://www.ehow.com/how_8422694_remove-white-gimp.html). Then I used a
table to place the fields where I wanted them.. So I can see a method to
get this handled.
I am a bit lost as to what it is exactly you are trying to achieve.
You don't say what it is you want as your PDF document and what that has
to do with Writer ?
For example, in Base, you can create a database form with a background
image that will have some degree of transparency.
You can also do this independently as a Writer document, into which you
insert your fields from your database. It is possible to insert and
image in this Writer document which can be set to be a watermark, i.e.
with a degree of transparency.
Where does the PDF come in ? Are you exporting your form to FPDF ?
Sorry, but I guess I'm missing something.
