Using the Page Background Section
Formatting a
Document
Hyphenation Options (Alt, P, H, H) opens the Hyphenation dialog box.
Here you can specify whether you want hyphenation of words that are all
in caps (such as acronyms), set the hyphenation zone (which specifies the
maximum distance between the end of the last word and the edge of a
column), and limit how many hyphens can appear in a stack at the ends of
lines (too many hyphens can be distracting, so you might want to set this
to one or two).
Using the Page Background Section
The Page Layout tab’s Page Background section lets you add special effects to each
page in your document, including watermarks, background color, and borders.
Adding a watermark
A watermark is a faint background image, like a company logo, that appears on each
page. (It can also be text saying, for example, “CONFIDENTIAL” or “DRAFT
DOCUMENT.”) When you type, your words appear in the foreground, over the
document, as shown in Figure 2-24.
To insert one of Word’s preloaded watermarks, follow these steps:
1. ClickPageLayout Watermark(Alt,P,PW).
A menu opens, displaying watermarks in a variety of categories, including
Confidential, Disclaimers, Urgent, and so on.
2. Scrolldowntofindthecategoryyouwant,andthenclickawatermark.
Word inserts your selection on each page of the document.
Customizing a watermark with text
If Word doesn’t offer the text you want as a watermark, you can compose your own
watermark text and insert it. Here’s how:
1. ClickPageLayout Watermark(Alt,P,PW).
The watermark menu opens.
2. Click Custom Watermark (if you have keyboard shortcuts turned on,
pressW).
Word opens the Printed Watermark dialog box, shown in Figure 2-25.
3. Turnonthe“Textwatermark”radiobuttonandmakeyourchoicesfromeach
