Hello @glenbuckarts,

To change the background colour for all pages inside your LibreOffice Writer document, you could do the following steps:

  1. Select the menu Format : Page...;
  2. In the dialog that appears, select the tab Area;
  3. Click on the button Color;
  4. Choose your preferred colour, and click OK.
