    I’ve got a document that has what appears to be a watermark at the bottom of every page that says “Draft.” I’d like to remove this except it isn’t a watermark because I went to (menu) Insert > Watermark and checked “No watermark” and then updated and “Draft” is still at the bottom of every page kind of grayed out. Help! I’m Word retarded.

    Thanks,

    Could it just be the footer. Try to edit the footer part on one of the pages.

    But then again I am not a Word PowerUser.

    If no help is available here try posting a picture of one of the pages.

    Is it possible the document was created with a trial version of Word?  I think MS puts something “in” those docs to prevent them from being used…I’m not Word expert…I try to avoid ALL MS products. lol Just a thought…

    Chartguy, the source of the .doc Skyped me and clued me in. Turns out that it was a footer and because I’ve been out of a real job for so long, I’ve dun forgotten how Word works. Thanks, everybody!
