Setting the Background Color or Image of a Page

You can specify a color to use as the background of a page. You can also specify an image to use as the background. This capability allows you to include a watermark, such as DRAFT for initial internal versions of your online content. The background image for a page is behind other elements on the page. If you set a background color for the page, you cannot see the background image for the page. Make sure the image is stored in the Files folder for the project so the image file is copied to your output folder. Also make sure the image does not make the text too difficult to read.

To set the background color or image of a page

  1. Open your Stationery design project.

  2. On the View menu, click Style Designer.

  3. In Page Styles, select the page style you want to modify.

  4. On the Properties tab, click Background.

  5. If you want to specify a color for the background of a page, select a color in the Color field, or type the RGB value of the color you want, such as FFFFFF.

  6. If you want to specify an image for the background of a page, complete the following steps:

  7. Save the image file in the Files folder for the project. ePublisher copies files from the Files folder when you generate the project.

  8. In the Image field under Background Image, select the image you want to use. ePublisher lists only the image files stored in the Files folder.

  9. Specify the tiling, scrolling, and position properties to position the image. For more information about a property, click Help.
