Agree, a good indexer would certainly have included "watermark." OTOH, you could have met them half-way and found what you needed. In the index, there are entries for: -- background graphics on master pages -- graphics:background, on master pages So on the index tab, just typing the term you used to _describe_ a watermark -- "background" -- will get you there. A search for background graphic works, too. Indexers should try to think of appropriate synonyms. But so should index users. Richard ------ Richard G.
