I have an InDesign letterhead design that I want to convert into an editable word document. I have converted it to a PDF which looks fine, but when I convert it to a Word document, the faded colour down the side (which would be behind writing of a letter) becomes bold and so isn't ideal or useful for the Word document letterhead template. Any advice?
Amy. sounds as though the design should be in the header/footer of the document. Word doesn't have layers, as such, the header footer does something similar though. The conversion process won't create a header/footer so you'll need to do this manually.
As you said, you've converted into PDF that looks fine. Why don't you try the converted PDF to word doc again
