Stretching background image for PDF file of Word 2010

Hi there,

I have a problem with Microsoft Word 2010. When I save the file as PDF file, the Word 2010 saves the file as PDF but the background image is in tiles, instead of stretched. Also, in the document, the background image is stretched. But when I save the document as PDF, it applies the background in tiles.

How do i change that?

That's a bug that's been in at least the last three versions of Word (and is still there in the Word 2013 Preview).

The workaround is this:
  • Remove the "page background" that you've put in.
  • Open the header pane.
  • Insert the image, set its text wrapping to Behind Text, and drag its sizing handles so it covers the whole page. You may want to use the controls on the Picture Tools tab to reduce the contrast and increase the brightness.
  • Close the header.
