Using the Background page

Use the Background page, pictured in Figure 315, to add color or a graphic to the background of the table of contents.

Adding color

To add color to the background of the table of contents, select from the color grid.

Note

Even though the table of contents may have a shade behind it while editing, it is actually not shaded by default. It appears shaded because it is a field and will appear to have the same shading all fields have.

Adding a graphic

To add a graphic to the background of the table of contents:

  1. From the As drop-down list, select Graphic. The Background tab now displays the graphics options, as shown in Figure 316.

  2. Click the Browse button. The Find graphics dialog box opens.

  3. Find the graphic file you want and then click the Open button. The Find graphics dialog box closes and the selected graphic appears in the graphic preview box on the right-hand side of the Background tab. (If you do not see the graphic, select the Preview checkbox.)

  4. To embed the graphic in your document, clear the Link checkbox. To link the graphic to the document but not embed it, select the Link checkbox.

  5. In the Type area of the Background tab, choose how you want the background graphic to appear:

  • To position the graphic in a specific location, select Position and then click the desired location in the position grid.

  • To stretch the graphic to fill the entire background area, select Area.

  • To repeat the graphic across the entire background area, select Tile.
