3. Formatting, Printing, and Table Hacks > 24. Create a Custom Text Watermark

Create a Custom Text Watermark

Instead of using Word’s predefined options, you can create your own watermark text with a few lines of PostScript slipped inside your document.

Word includes a neat feature for inserting a watermark behind a document. You can either choose a picture to use as the watermark, or choose from among a list of text options.

To see the available options for text watermarks, select FormatBackgroundPrinted Watermark to display the dialog shown in Figure 3-43.

You must choose from a predefined list of text watermarks

But what if the text you’d like to use for a watermark isn’t on that list? Or how about including the date or document author as part of the watermark?

Fortunately, you can use a PRINT field and a few lines of PostScript to create your own custom watermark.
