Yes that does not appear to work A watermark is just an image or text inserted into the Header layers of a document, so all you need to do is open the Header by double clicking in the Header space or selecting Header and Footer from the View Menu. Next, you'll want to right click on the image and select Wrapping Text with a Behind Text setting. From the same "right click" menu, Format Picture brings up a sidebar and you apply a transparency setting for "washing out" the image. Finally the Size and Position settings also on the "right click" menu gives you Lock settings you are after.

So even though they've got yet another bug in this software Oh, please do us a favor and send a bug report to the Microsoft programmers.

No special graphics software necessary

All you have to do is use the Smiley control on Word's ribbon, click the what can be better option and tell them their Watermark right click menu isn't working correctly. I'll send one too, but I know they are getting really tired of hearing from me.

With Word for Mac, you can do it all but when you right click the image to lock position, the format picture dialog box doesn't appear. I tried this on two different Macs and got the same results.

    Sorry this didn't help. This MacBook is shut down daily at least. That said, I just restarted it again anyway, and I have the same result afterwards. To add some additional clarity or confusion to the situation, I do agree there is an issue with this particular MS Word installation now on this particular MacBook. The unfortunate part is I use Word a lot more at work than I do at home. Also to add, I've been using these same MacBooks with Office installations for nearly a couple years each and did not have any issue until now with my work version after the latest insider slow update.

    While not ideal, I can use Pages if just needing to view documents. To address the prior recommendation, there isn't exactly a Mac version of Word Options that has a placeholder option. I did open my personal MBP and compare the Word Preferences, and they are both identical in that area that I can see at least. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the current and one previous version of Word including what I thought was all of the containers and caches , and the issue persists anyway.

    However, there still must be files outside of both the app package itself and what I deleted that remain, as it also retained all of my preferences after reinstalling Word. So, I'm definitely still open to any suggestions. However, I will try to work around using Mac Word in the meantime.
