Background color
« on: June 13, 2017, 11:33:04 am »
Hello guys...
I'm wondering why the background color of text frame doesn't appear in print preview. What I've done wrong ?

ciao marco

- don't use the print preview (except you know you need the features it provides... which is not the preview of the way your document will be printed).

- for the preview use "view > preview mode" instead.

- you will get a real preview by producing a pdf and looking at it with a good pdf viewer (if possible, the same one you will be using for printing).

this having been said:

- how are you setting the background color?

ciao

if you see it on screen, it should make it into the pdf...

can you try to export your file to a pdf?
