I have created some basic labels and documents in Libre Office and found a way to add background textured looks to those documents. This was not a colored background but a gray scale looking textured appearance. However, I wanted to add that look to similar documents and cannot remember how I did that before. Can you help me navigate to where I was able to do this before? Thanks.

Which documents exactly? Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw? Could you upload such a document (after removing everything except the background formatting) to a public file hoster so we could check that document?
