Using Watermarks in Word

Someone recently asked how they could add the word "DRAFT" behind their text on their Word document. Technically speaking, they wanted to add a watermark to their document.

To add a watermark:

  1. Click on the Format menu.
  2. Point to Background and a menu will appear.
  3. At the bottom of the menu, you will see Printed Watermark. . . Click on it and a separate dialog box will appear.
  4. You have three radio buttons (1. No watermark; 2. Picture watermark; 3. Text watermark). To add text, click on Text watermark.
  5. Use the dropdown menu to select the word(s) you want to use as your watermark (ex. Draft, Top Secret, etc.).
  6. Click OK.
