Formatting Background
Desktop Apps Training - Writer


When you use the Background tab you will have the choice whether you would like to format the background of the paragraph with color or if you would like to insert a graphic into the background. The color formatting of the background is simple; select a color and click OK. The color will be visible in the preview window.

If you choose Graphic instead of Color you will then be able to browse for the graphic you would like to use.

Using Graphic you will have additional options of position, area and tile.

Here is an example of a paragraph background.

Here you see the graphic inserted into the paragraph. This graphic is a ruler that could be placed to separate paragraphs.
