Inserting a watermark

You can insert a watermark, which is a lightly shaded image, behind text and other graphics on a page. Watermarks are used as a background for text. WordPerfect® allows you to create watermarks from an image on file or from a clipart image. You can have a maximum of two watermarks in each document. You can adjust the shading of watermarks within each document to make them lighter or darker. You can also suppress or delete a watermark.
