How do you get a picture background to print in Word?



If you select Format/Background/Fill Effects/ and then select the Picture Tab
and insert a picture from a file and then click OK, you will get a picture
that repeats across your page that you can put text on. The picture does not
print. How do I get it to print?

Although backgrounds were intended for Web pages and not designed for
printing, you can print them in Word 2003 if you check the appropriate
option on the Print tab of Tools | Options. They can't be printed in any
previous version. If you want a background that will print, you need to
insert a watermark.
