Click Tools > Gallery > Backgrounds and then right-click a background pattern and select Add. None of the quick-menu options allows the proper insertion of the background pattern in the current slide. This works in Writer. For consistency and improved usability, the enhancement is desirable.

This is an enhancement.

Even though the background can not be set through the gallery it can be set through the slide. The only problem is that not all the images from the gallery are available. 1. Right click on slide 2. Slide / Page Setup 3. Background tab 4. Select preferred background 5. Ok

The same problem applies to Calc and Draw as well. Do we need separate issues for them? All of the OOo applications support a bitmap page background; that setting should be available from the Gallery panel for all the apps, just as it is already available from Writer.

right click - Insert should change slide background and not insert picture. AOO410m18(Build:9764) - Rev. 1589052 2014-04-22 12:11 - Linux x86_64 Debian
