Defining Background Colors or Background Graphics

You can define a background color or use a graphic as a background for cell ranges in LibreOffice Calc.

Applying a Background Color to a LibreOffice Calc Spreadsheet

  1. Select the cells.

  2. Choose \<emph\>Format - Cells\</emph\> (or \<emph\>Format Cells\</emph\> from the context menu).

  3. On the \<emph\>Background\</emph\> tab page, select the background color.

Graphics in the Background of Cells

  1. Choose \<emph\>Insert - Picture - From File\</emph\>.

  2. Select the graphic and click \<emph\>Open\</emph\>.

    The graphic is inserted anchored to the current cell. You can move and scale the graphic as you want. In your context menu you can use the Arrange - To Background command to place this in the background. To select a graphic that has been placed in the background, use the Navigator.
