Change Font: This allows you to change the stamp font and size for that document.
Remove the Stamp: This will remove the stamp from a document. You can then save the document into NetDocuments without the Stamp. You might have documents you need to upload to the court or send to opposing counsel and don’t want the stamp in place.
Add Stamp: Because of Firm Letterhead, you might have set your NetDocuments to Stamp the footer after the first page. The stamp won’t appear when you have a document with only one page. The add Stamp feature will add the stamp to one-page documents.
Remove Version: Will Remove the version while keeping the Document Number.
