Using the New Background Feature In Mac Pages

You can now set a background color, gradient or image for sections in Pages documents. This is a new feature in the Section sidebar that makes it much easier to include a color fill or pattern behind your text.

    How do I add a background color behind JUST full the header and footer bars across the page? Poking around, I was able to add a background color behind a “paragraph” (the text already typed into a header section) but it did not fill the entire section. The background color was only visible behind the text. The rest of the section remained the document color. Thanks so much, Gary. LOVE your tutorials!

    Janet: There’s no way to easily do that. You could use an image as a background that happens to have white everywhere but the areas where the header and footer are located. Or, you could use Section Masters with shapes behind the header or footer areas.

    So glad you explained the new location of Section. That makes things so much easier for me!
