In HTML/CSS, it is possible to use an image as a background and repeat it vertically and/or horizontally (see MDN documentation).

Is it possible to achieve this with LibreOffice Writer?

Rationale: I would like to use an image from Subtle Patterns as the background of my document.

Thanks in advance!

Hello @ePierre,

To repeat a background image in Writer, you could do:

  1. Select the menu "Format : Page...";
  2. In the dialog that appears, select the tab "Area";
  3. Click on the button "Bitmap";
  4. Click on the button "Add/Import" to locate your image;
  5. In the dropdown listbox called "Style", select the item "Tiled";
  6. Set any further tiling settings as desired;
  7. Apply & OK.
