Document Background Color


Semi-new user to Corel Draw here. I'm trying to find a way to change the entire background of the document to a color besides white. I found a post on here talking about how to change the print area background color, but I want to leave the print area white and change the surrounding area. Any ideas?


RE: Document Background Color

Hello Wrussler;
The page color and a hole lot of other things can be set by going to the "Tool" on the menu bar, then click "Options" on the fly out, that will take you to the setup section of draw.
But to change the page color for just the one drawing you can select "Layout" on the meny bar and select "Page Background" from the fly out

I hope this is some Help
