Document.DefaultSearchableObjects = new SearchableObjects
{
	WordsSearchableObjects = WordsSearchableObjects.Hyperlinks | WordsSearchableObjects.Text,
	CellsSearchableObjects = CellsSearchableObjects.HeadersFooters,
	SlidesSearchableObjects = SlidesSearchableObjects.SlidesBackgrounds | SlidesSearchableObjects.Shapes,
	DiagramSearchableObjects = DiagramSearchableObjects.None,
	PdfSearchableObjects = PdfSearchableObjects.All
};

foreach (var file in Directory.GetFiles(@"D:\files"))
{
	using (var doc = Document.Load(file))
	{
		var watermarks = doc.FindWatermarks();

		// The code for working with found watermarks goes here.
	}
}

Set searchable objects for a particular document instance

C#

using (var doc = Document.Load(@"D:\test.pdf"))
{
	// Search for hyperlinks only.
	doc.SearchableObjects.PdfSearchableObjects = PdfSearchableObjects.Hyperlinks;
	var watermarks = doc.FindWatermarks();

	// The code for working with found watermarks goes here.
}

C#

string privateKey = "[Your Dynabic.Metered private key]";

Metered metered = new Metered();
metered.SetMeteredKey(publicKey, privateKey);

// Use the library in licensed mode
