Page>Background image smaller than Insert>Image

Postby virtualnobi » Tue Jun 25, 2019 9:44 am

Hi,

I want to use a background image for all pages of a document. The sizing/placement options for page background and "regular" images differ, though:

Format>Page>Background>As Graphic gives me three options to place the image (Position, Pane, Tile - my translation from German), but the image is always put inside the page margins.

as opposed to when I insert an image, where I can specify 0 margins at two places - I don't know which ones are more important, but in effect, the page background image ends up to cover the margins as well:

Image>Type>Anchor>On Page
Image>Wrap>"Durchlauf" (sorry, German installation, 5th option)

Now as I want to have the image shown on the (otherwise empty) margins of the page, I can't use the page background image and set the page margins to 0 (as recommended in another thread here).

Does that mean I have to put the image onto every single page?

(sorry for the garbled signature, just registered and need to fix that :-( )
Danke & Gr????e von
