Hello, I am completely new to ID and am using a trial version of InDesign CC.
I'm making a document which you can see here:
All I've done is change the background to that colour, added the png in the top right hand corner and then added and coloured some text. I've gone to export as a PDF and I get this:
So, why is my background not showing? I'm assuming the rest of the text isn't because I'm essentially seeing white text on a white background. Any help would be much appreciated, and please communicate in simple terms because I'm completely new to this software.
How did you get the background color? I'm thinking you edited the Paper swatch.All that does is simulate the color of the paper you will be printing one.
To get a color in the background, draw a rectangle, fill it with the color and send it to the back.
I did! That's great, thanks SRiegel, I'll try it now.
