How to set background color in Writer?

See my comments above (or below). :wink:

Could you move this additional info to the original question?

Too bad I can’t upvote to say thanks just because I’m new. This is an atrocious policy and counts as a major down side to recommending libreoffice to clients/friends etc.

“Yea, it’s a nice app suite I guess but you can’t trim down the portable version to just writer and the forum assumes you’re a spammer or something and cripples your ability to interact out of the gate.”


ThornyJohn, thank you :slight_smile: I’m sorry I can’t upvote your solution. :confused:

Sidenote to whom it may concern: Posts like the one I’m now writing are like roaches, for every one you see there are 10 you didn’t.

It’s been a while since you posted this, and some things may have changed in the way this site works. Before you can vote, you need one upvoted question or answer. It’s too bad people don’t seem to be voting much, but comments like this do not particularly help to get karma :expressionless:

This answer does not really answer the question, so in my humble opinion it should have been a comment under the answer you’re referring too.

Thanks for contributing, though!

Has this issue ever been addressed? I really want to be able to work with the whole page in a brown background, and white text in the middle. I have bad eyesight. I need the margins, so Web Mode won’t work for me, and white margins with brown background are very distracting. I will have to go to a commercial product if this isn’t addressed. It seems like a very bizarre bug to just let happen. I wish I was a coder so I could help fix it.
