Hey guys, I have a document which will be converted into pdf. I want the whole background of the document to have a specific color (content + borders), which should also appear in the pdf. "Tools → Options → LibreOffice → Application" does NOT help because the color then does not appear in the pdf. - I hope it is clear what I'm asking for and hope someone can help me out! Thanks!

You need to change the page background by modifying the page style in use. When you edit the page style, depending on the LibO version you use you have a tab called "Background" or "Area" where you can change the background colour. That will only change the text area, not the margins, though.

If you need the margins to have a background you need to do some tricks. First set the "real" page margins to zero, then on the "Borders" tab set a border (this will not be needed on 5.4, but on previous versions it is) and finally a "Spacing to content" that simulate the margins.
