    Picture watermark disappears (WORD 2003)

    Edited 16:06: In fact, I have just noticed that even though I can the background on the screen, when print-preview the doc - it is missing. BTW: the background image is set up through Format|Background|Fill Effects|Picture. Totally lost now.

    Hi

    I have created a template with a picture background with some text boxes for user information. Create a document using this template & save it.

    When reopen the document, lo & behold the background image/pciture is gone! I don't undestand it? Any ideas?
    Also, if I create a document, save but do not close WORD - I can see the background image. If I then run the Adobe PDF Maker, it create the PDF file without the background image. Again - has anybody seen this?

    Any help highly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Format|Background|Fill Effects is intended for using in HTML documents. Such a background is only visible in Web Layout view, not in Normal or Print Layout view.
    For a background that is visible in Print Layout view and on the printed output, use Format | Background | Printed Watermark and select the Picture option.

    Damn! <img src=/S/aflame.gif border=0 alt=aflame width=16 height=16>

    Why? Why not have a single background available for display/print anywhere/anytime? Is there a logical reason for doing this separately?

    Now, this document will be used on the web, plus printed, plus PDFed etc. I need to find an answer.

    Why can't there be a simple way of doing this.
    Thanks.

    I'd go with the printed watermark. This should be preserved when you convert to PDF, and also if you make the document available on the web as a Word document.
