What is the main purpose of a watermark? (Pick one answer.)

Authenticate your document as the original.

Add a dappled, water-like finish to your printed document.

Communicate useful information or add visual interest without overpowering the main text of the document.

Test 1, question 1: Answer Communicate useful information or add visual interest without overpowering the main text of the document. Decorate documents with graphic and text effects You can add text watermarks such as “Confidential,” “Draft,” or any designator you choose. You can also add graphical watermarks.

Test 1, question 2 What is the main difference between backgrounds and watermarks? (Pick one answer.) Decorate documents with graphic and text effects Backgrounds are always solid colors, and watermarks are always transparent images. Backgrounds are intended for documents that will be viewed on the Web, and watermarks for printed documents or documents that will be displayed in print layout view. There is no difference. The two serve the same function.

Test 1, question 2: Answer Backgrounds are intended for documents that will be viewed on the Web, and watermarks for printed documents or documents that will be displayed in print layout view. Decorate documents with graphic and text effects Word helps you with this. For example, when you add a background fill effect, Word automatically switches to Web layout view if you’re not already there. And you cannot add a printed watermark if you’re in Web layout view; Word makes the Printed Watermark command unavailable.

Backgrounds are intended for documents that will be viewed on the Web, and watermarks for printed documents or documents that will be displayed in print layout view.

Lesson 2 Adding a border, shading, or fill effect

Word offers a range of options for framing and emphasizing text, tables and table cells, graphics, and entire pages. This lesson introduces these ready-made and customizable options and shows you the basics of how to add them to your document.

Borders, shading, and decorative fill effects aren’t just for holiday newsletters. Word offers a range of options for framing and emphasizing text, tables and table cells, graphics, and entire pages.

This lesson introduces these ready-made and customizable options and shows you the basics of how to add them to your document.

Page borders You can add full or partial borders to any portion of any page of a document. Word provides a variety of built-in page borders, from businesslike to fancy. You start from the Page Border tab in the Borders and Shading dialog box ( Format menu). Decorate documents with graphic and text effects Document with a graphical page border

You start from the Page Border tab in the Borders and Shading dialog box ( Format menu).

Page borders From the Page Border tab, you can choose: Decorate documents with graphic and text effects Document with a graphical page border The type of overall border, from a simple box to shadowed to 3-D to a custom style of your design. The line style, color, and thickness. The artistic style, which can be fun if your document is informal or tied to a special occasion, event, or holiday.

From the Page Border tab, you can choose:

The type of overall border, from a simple box to shadowed to 3-D to a custom style of your design.

Page borders Decorate documents with graphic and text effects Document with a graphical page border You can preview the design right inside the dialog box, so it’s easy to see how your chosen effects will look.

Borders for text, tables, and graphics You can put borders around discrete chunks of text to set them apart. You can also use borders to set off tables and graphics, as shown in the picture. To add a border, you select the text, table, table cell, or graphic. Then open the Borders and Shading dialog box, click the Borders tab, and choose the style, width, color, and so on.

As with borders, you can experiment with colors and styles, and preview the effects.

Shading Here, that preview is particularly helpful because the color and gradient you choose for the shading can make the words on the page hard to read. Decorate documents with graphic and text effects Shading emphasizes the heading and pull quote. You always want to make sure that the effect you choose doesn’t overpower the text itself.

Quick table effects If you specifically want to set apart or spruce up a table, take a look at the Table AutoFormat feature. It provides built-in border, shading, and color schemes. The schemes are great because the designs are unified and professional, and they save you the hassle of manually applying separate effects.

Lesson 3 Creating special text effects

Creating special text effects How do you emphasize text? Often it’s the old standbys, bold and italic, or maybe the occasional application of all caps. But Word offers a range of graphical formatting gems—such as embossing, drop caps, WordArt, and animations—that can add strong visual impact when used sparingly.

Special font effects Some usage tips Decorate documents with graphic and text effects Shadow, outline, emboss, and engrave font effects These effects often show up best when you use a larger font size. In many cases, the effects look great when used in combination with other more basic effects, such as different fonts and font styles (for example, bold and italic).
