libreoffice impress: missing background tab


To whom it may concern.

Libreoffice impress, (probably any distribution)

Missing background tab, under format->page. Therefore, unable to set background.

Need to be "normal" view in the main pane. (No notes, handout tab)

It is a kind of silly situation, but is is not documented under It took several hours for me to find out.

Closing remark
If anybody else runs into same situation, try above. If it does not work and find some other solution, please post here.

Have a nice penguin!

Using Libreoffice I open a new presentation. There are a series of icons running along the bottom of the presentation. The next to last icon there is the Gallery icon. I click on it and the first item on that menu is Background. Does that help?
