Hi

I have an application form which is in PDF format. Ive created a JPEG version of the file and would like to embed it into a word document as a background. I would then want to insert text over the top of the application form, can this be done?

thanks

It seems to me that you can insert the jpg file in the Header. Adjust the placement of the image, then close the header.

It might help if you use the Format/Background option. That is a sort of Wizard which uses a picture in the header.

However, be aware that is might be difficult to ensure that that any text lines up with the background.

How about setting it as a watermark?
Insert the picture into the document.
Click on picture.
Click on Page Layout-> Watermark->Save Selection to Watermark Gallery
Give it a name and click ok.
Delete image from document.
Click on Page Layout-> Watermark->Choose picture for watermark.
This works in Word 2007.

Ok, Ive got the picture inserted as a background. Im now trying to insert text boxes on top of the artwork but when I try to move the text box into position - I cant get the box to sit where I want it, its either too high or too low.

How can I move the txt box by small amounts?

Choose the 'Draw' dropdown arrow on the 'Drawing' toolbar. Select 'Grid' from the pop-up, and remove the tick from the 'Snap objects to grid' checkbox.

If you are using carriage returns, adjust the space between the lines (Format Paragraph -> Spacing).
