Watermark not visible or printed out RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, i am stuck with adding watermarks to my documents.

    I add picture do a docx as a watermark. after i add it it is placed in the center of the page. 

    I click header to move it and i move it aa few lines above text. After that i can not see it any more. Clicking header again, i see a place where it should be, but the picture is no longer displayed. So, to sum it up, it can not be placed on a text or above text.

    It is also not visible after printing the document

  • I'm not 100% sure what you are trying to accomplish... Watermarks are anchored to the header (as you already know) which means that they always appear behind the text of the document.

    If it is important the the whole picture shows, you can put it "In line with text" in the header (resize the picture if necessary); it'll then be part of the normal text flow as a large text character.
