Open Office: Change Document BG Color


Hi. I'm running Open Office 3.2.0. Does anybody know how to change the background color of an entire Open Office document? I know that you can change the background of a page in the Format >> Page menu, but this does not change the color of the page area inside the margins.

Normally it wouldn't make much sense to change the background color when it just gets print to a page anyway. But I actually wanted to export the document to PDF, and was thinking it would make the PDF look better if I could pick the BG color.

Thanks, that did change all the background, as I requested. Unfortunately, the change does not get carried over to the exported PDF.
