[Solved] Change Background Color

Postby MalM » Wed Jul 07, 2010 5:24 pm

Hi,

I have attempted to change the background color on some of the OOs forms that I created and I have been unsuccessful with figuring it out.

I went into edit mode; right clicked and chose "Edit/Paragraph Style"; clicked on the background tab and picked the color I wanted;

this method will only change the color on the first line of the form and nothing else. I was wondering if there is a way of changing the entire background?

Thanks

M.

I figured it out. Open the Styles and Formatting control (F11), and choose the Page Styles button. Modify the Default style and change the background color.

I have not found a style for the Label Field font colors, but they can be changed as a group.

Ungroup the Label Fields from the Text Boxes. Select only the Label Fields (shift-click), then right-click on the group and choose Control. Set the Font properties and they will be applied to all the selected Label Fields.

If this has answered your question please go to your first post and use the Edit button, and add [Solved] to the start of the title. You should select the green tick icon at the same time.
