Watermark in Microsoft Word 2010

A watermark is a recognizable image or pattern in paper that appears as various shades of lightness/darkness when viewed by transmitted light, caused by thickness or density variations in the paper. Microsoft Word has given an option to paste a watermark in the documents. This is available since 2003, 2007 and 2010 versions.

Steps to Insert watermark on a document in word 2010: 

1) Click on Page layout Menu and click on Watermark Ribbon. to get different predefined watermarks.

2) To customize the text that we want in the watermark choose Custom Watermark to get a window like below. 

3) Choose Text Watermark to get the desired text that we type in the Text field under its options. Choose other options to set the required font, size, color and layout. 

4) Click OK to get the desired watermark. 

Watermark can make a document entirely private and confidential. This helps to increase the value of the document and its security. 


How do you apply a watermark to ALL pages in a 2010 word document that has section breaks

Does not work for me!!!
Only puts it in the section you are in. If you go to another section and insert the same watermark it works but then the previous section watermark dissapears!!!???

How do I edit a PREDEFINED watermark so that the choices are useful for me? Or, how do I add a custom watermark to Quick Parts?
