Change page background colour writer (

Hey, just wondering how to change the background colour of an entire page in writer.

Have seen this question asked/answered before but not for my version of libreoffice (
The directions given for other versions that I have read did not work for me.

Thanks guys.

Is Format|Page|Background|Colour helpful?

What have you tried, so people can avoid repeating?

It’s not just helpful, It’s just the answer I’ve been looking for!
Put it in the “answer” section and give yourself a pat on the back! :slight_smile:

As requested :slight_smile:


Note that unless you want the colour applied to all pages in the document, you’ll need to add sections to allow normal or coloured backgrounds in different pages of the document.
