Default How do I save a custom watermark in Word 2007?

The "Save selection to Watermark gallery" is grayed out so I am not able to
save custom watermarks. I even read the directions (in the book "Using
Office 2007" by QUE publishing), all to no avail. The product is MS Office
2007 (specifically Word 2007). Thank you.

Default How do I save a custom watermark in Word 2007?

I select "custom watermark" and select "text." I then enter the text I want
(instead of having the default "ASAP," or "DRAFT." In my mind, nothing
extraordinary is selected. I'm just replacing their text with my own. At
home I have Mac machines, and this option works just fine with MS Office 2004
for Mac. I find it interesting it doesn't work on the Windows machines.

You basically had the same dialog as 2007 and the custom watermark applied
to the current doc only... it wasn't - and still isn't - added to the
default list of watermarks in that dialog. At least in 2007 you can save the
custom watermark, but as a gallery object and you need to do it this way:

1- Create the custom watermark as you're currently doing. It is inserted as
a graphic object in the Header/Footer layer of the doc.

2- Next, go to the H/F layer (Insert TabHeader buttonEdit Header or just
double-click near the top edge of the page).

3- Once there, click on the watermark to select it, then go to the Page
Layout TabWatermark & your Save Selection to Watermark Gallery command will
be active.

From then on you will be able to select it from the Gallery in any doc & not
have to recreate it or go back into the Custom Watermark dialog unless
creating a new one.
