Welcome to our community, Patty
Try selecting all the slides in either Storyboard view or your Film Strip. Right-click the selection and examine the Slide Properties. Once there you should see an option allowing you to change the Background Color.
Keep in mind, however, that if your project was recorded, each of the backgrounds will consist of screen captures. Thus any change to color won't really affect anything.
If you are creating a project from scratch, you might look at Edit > Preferences... > Project node > Settings node. There you will also find a global option for setting the background color.
Hi Patty, how you doing? Glad to see a new face on the user forums! Do this:
1) Open the project
2) Go to the text EDIT menu
3) Select PREFERENCES
4) Move down to the PROJECT menu (or "Project>Settings" - same thing)
5) Halfway down the dialog see "Visual and Sound Effects" area
6) Click the drop-list for PROJECT BACKGROUND COLOR
7) Select you color for the entire project ... *
* Note that you can change the background color of an individual slide within the project by selecting it from the text menu, "Slide > Properties" dialog.
Have a good day.
Ooops, didn't see the other community expert there. I would offer a reason to use my suggestion instead of the other (no offense to anyone) ...
If you do as Captiv8tr said and select *all* slides, then change the background color from the slide properties dialog as was suggested by Captiv8tr ... and then you add new slides to the project, you will have to change each and every new slide background color as they are added.
If you use my suggestion, you will be changing the background color of the entire project, so new slides will automatically adopt the background color you chose in the Preferences dialog (Edit > Preferences).
Hope this clarifies the differences in suggestions offered ...
Have a good'un
