Thank all of you for your help. I did solve my problem with help from users.
The pathway is **a *Format - Page - Area**- Then change the Fill Bar to
Bitmap* - this opens a whole new panel of selections, which includes an
*Import Graphic* bar. Clicking it allowed for navigation to the .jepg I
needed for the watermark. I did not need to change the transparency, I
just wanted the background image (it was a form with fill-in lines but
was not a .pdf or word processor document.)
This pathway is not at all intuitive. Perhaps someone who knows how to
modify the help files (mine are downloaded and installed) to reflect
Better yet, why not have *WATERMARK* as one of the choices of the
*Insert* drop down menu. I think that would make it intuitive.

As I asked Joe, what type of watermark do you want? Do you know how to add a graphic to the
gallery? ( Assuming your watermark is a graphic)
You begin with Format > Page. Click the Area tab . Select type of watermark from the Fill drop
down list. Select the Transparency tab. Set the amount of transparency. Close the dialog.
The Fill drop down list is likely to be a problem because of the underlying choices that are
possible. Custom colors can be created and used. Gradients can be created and used. Hash patterns
likewise. Graphics can be added to the gallery and then used. ( This is done differently from how
it use to be done. )

I have to say I am beaten by this. I had a look at some old doco which
echoed what Joe said. Any takers?
