Hi Whirlr's

I have not done this in Word in quite some time, but I have to do it now. I'm using Word 2000 (9.0) on XP.

When I insert a picture and tell it so have the Layout as Behind Text, Print Preview shows me just what I want: a title going over my picture, as though it were a watermark.

When I send it to the printer, however, the picture puts itself on top of the text. I have tried every way of accessing the "Behind Text" and "Send Behind" options. Print Preview looks good, printout does not.

What is the magic incantation to this?
