The background tool allows you to pick different colors, textures or patterns as the background of a page in your book or calendar (or work space for canvases and other projects).
- For books and calendars, select the page that you want to change.
- Open the Backgrounds tool from the left menu, and select a theme to expand the category.
- Click a background to apply it to your page or workspace. The example below shows a background that has been applied to a calendar page (and the icon is checked in the Backgrounds menu).
The difference between design and background is that designs include photo layouts and can apply to an entire calendar. Backgrounds do not include any photos and apply only the page or surface being viewed.
