  1. I’m trying to use a picture as a background for a word document. This is done
    by selecting “Page Layout, Page Color, Fill Effects, Picture” on this tab you
    can select the image to set as background. Unfortunately both options “Lock
    picture aspect ratio” and “Rotate fill effect with shape” are both grayed
    out. Consequence is that picture isn’t displayed propperly if you zoom
    document. Furthermore the document isn’t printed like it should. The
    background image is printed either very small or very large.

    Is there anyone who knows why these options are grayed out???
    I can’t seem to find any sollution for this problem…..
