    Watermark (Office - Word 2000)

    I have a 10 page document and I tried to add a watermark to it.

    I went: Format, Background, watermark. - text watermark, semitransparent, diagonal, size = auto

    now the document show DRAFT at the left top corner. It will not print/display in the middle of the page.

    I think a watermark is a piece of WordArt and can be dragged to whereever you want it. Or you could revisit the dialogs and see if that helps. If not, does other WordArt work properly?

    It is not a Wordart and it will not be dragged. The only options I see are when I added....Format, Backgroud..etc.

    I run Word 2002 now, but maybe this was very different in Word 2000. I can view the header, click the watermark (when the mouse is over a letter), and drag and rotate it as I please. When I click it, the WordArt toolbar appears. It's rather straightforward. Maybe someone else with Word 2000 can check this out for you.

    I stand corrected. I followed your steps and yep... I was able to move it like you said.

    Thanks everyone.

    Hi,
    I have Word 2000 Pro installed and I do not have the menu sequence you describe at all. Are you sure you're not running some custom macro? The only menuitems under the Format | Background menu I have are: No FIll, a choice of colors, More Colors and Fill Effects. Where is "watermark. - text watermark, semitransparent, diagonal, size = auto" coming from? <img src=/S/question.gif border=0 alt=question width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>
