Adding Lines, Borders, Shading, and Backgrounds

Word lets you draw border lines and apply colors and other forms of shading to specific pieces of text, cells in tables, paragraphs, entire tables, or entire pages. When you draw a line around a page, it's called a page border. When you apply colors or shading to an entire page, it's called a background. And when you place a picture or text “behind” the text on a page—say, to print DRAFT diagonally across the page, or to brand the page with the word CONFIDENTIAL—that picture or text is called a watermark.

TIP FROM

To add a watermark to a document, choose Format, Background, Printed Watermark. The watermark is inserted as part of the document's (actually, the section's) header. By working directly with the header (View, Header and Footer), you can manually change the watermark—move it, resize it, or even delete it.
