Dear PC Doctor:

I created some stationery for my club. It’s a Word document, and I added a watermark that’s pretty snazzy. The problem is, when I print, the watermark doesn’t show. How do I get the Word document to print and show the watermark?



Dear Joe:

Open the Word document that you want to print. Look at the top left of your screen and choose File. In the blue column that appears, look to the bottom and click Options. You’ll get a box that says Word Options at the top. Choose Display. In the bottom third of the Display box, you’ll see Printing options. Make sure the boxes for Print drawing created in Word and Print background colors and images are checked. Next, click OK. Your watermark should now print!

I hope this helps!
Until next time,
Happy computing!
