How can I save a new custome watermark in Word 2007?



I need to create a new watermark to be placed diagonally across the pages of
a document. I use this watermark many times daily and it is a nuissance to
keep typing it over and over again. The only answer I saw in the blogs was
how to do it if you want it in the footer or header. HELP! This could be done
in the 2003 version but I can't figure out how to do it in 2007.

A watermark is nothing more nor less than a graphic anchored to the header,
faded, and given Behind Text wrapping. You can save your custom watermark as
building block. Double-click to open the header, select your watermark,
press Alt+F3, select Watermarks as the gallery, and give the entry a name.
You'll probably want to create a new category for it. Alternatively, just
save it as an AutoText entry, which you can insert (in the header) by typing
the first few letters of the name and pressing F3.
