[Solved] Creating black page

Postby Wthwolf » Fri Feb 15, 2019 10:38 pm

I am trying to create a presentation that contains Hymns (words only) for church service. Between each hymn slide I am trying to create a black slide as the hymns are not sung one right after another. For some reason i click on fill and nothing happens. I can do this in PowerPoint but cannot do it in Impress. Is there something special I have to do to fill a blank slide with black?

Click on Fill, then select Color from the dropdown, then Black. Works for me.

I've just done this on another computer, using a different operating system - so it works identically on Windows and linux:
/Format /Page : Background tab, select Color from the Fill dropdown, then select the desired colour from the list, click on OK. Answer "No" to "Apply to all pages" query that pops up.

RoryOF thank you , that works like a charm. I had been playing around and also found that if if you used a blank slide and then went to the bottom of the page and clicked on rectangle and fitted it to the page, you could then clicked on fill and chose black it would come up with a black page also. Like your way better. I just don't have the experience with impress.
