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.
