Ugh. I did all of this and no dice. I could get the watermark off of page 3 and it would stay on pages 1 and 2, but when I tried to add a new watermark to page 3, it would also change the watermarks on pages 1 and 2. Just brutal.
So, I had to bypass the watermark button.
I opened a new Word doc and posted a picture that I wanted to watermark on the page. So, my watermark was located in My Pictures and was not a default Windows watermark. I configured the picture, making it “behind text” and see-through.
Next, I simply cut and paste the thing into the third page of my document and it worked. A bit of a pain, but not really that much more time-consuming.
Seriously though, this company makes so much money and they can’t make a Word program without all the frustration? Could there not be one button that sets a page or section break that includes “independent content from all other sections”, which would be a replacement for the “link to previous” crap that works when it wants. Sometimes it works for me and sometimes it doesn’t, but sometimes isn’t good enough.
