How to Add a Draft Watermark for WordPerfect


Watermarks are lightly shaded words or pictures on a piece of paper or the digital pages of word processing documents. They were originally added to paper in the late Middle Ages to identify the paper manufacturer or guild producing the paper. In the case of word processing software such as Corel WordPerfect, watermarks are added to provide information, such as the words "Draft" or "No Distribution" on a document, or for visual appeal with picture or logo watermarks.

  • Open WordPerfect. Click Insert and select Watermark. Click Watermark A, then click Create. A new watermark editing page opens.

  • Choose a font and font size from the drop-down menus. Type "Draft." Adjust the location of the word on the page with the "Enter" key and the Text Justification tool. For example, place the cursor in front of "Draft" and press the "Enter" key until the word is in the middle of the page. Click the Text Justification tool and select Center. The word is now centered in the middle of the page.

  • Click the Watermark Placement tool on the Property Bar and select Odd Pages, Even Pages or Every Page to determine where your watermark will appear. Click the Watermark Shading tool to adjust the darkness of the watermark. Shading is measured in percentages, with lower percentages being lighter and higher percentages darker.

  • Click File and select Close. The watermark editing page closes and the watermark is displayed on your document.

Tips & Warnings

  • To delete a watermark from a document (if, for example, a draft document is finalized), move the cursor to the beginning of the document, click Insert, select Watermark and click Discontinue.
