Description goldfisch1980 2006-02-07 14:40:05 UTC
I need to define a background image for an openoffice writer document that fills
 a WHOLE page! At the moment, the background is only displayed up to the
page-margins top/left/right/bottom. Well, nice feature, but its not real
PAGE-background in this case; it's just a background for the editable area! But
that does not make so much sense in most cases, I think!?

The background should be not moveable and not changeable in its size. It should
be repeated on each followed page. Well, okay, this is the way it is realized at
the moment and that is fine! Please keep this as is.

My goal is, to create an writer document in our corporate design (logo and
certain background image) and convert this to PDF. The PDF will be sent out to
our customers. Our sheet has a special border that is drawn outside the normal
editable textarea. The only workaround is a very nasty doing:
- include the image and sent to the very background
- define a extra textlayer for the text over the background
- lock the backgroundlayer that it is not changed in its size/position
- put in least one character in the textlayer (otherwise OO deletes it - whyever)

It would be more easy to deliver one additional function: 
[x] print background outside print-margins
