Document Designer and Background Images

OVERVIEW

Background Images can be applied to the template as a whole or to individual Sections. The Background Images of Sections take precedence over a Background image applied to the Document Designer template as a whole. A template’s Background Image is only shown in Sections that do not have a Background Image applied, and in Table of Contents Layouts.

Background Images can be File Manager images, or external images that can be referenced with a URL.

Regardless whether it was defined for the template or for an individual section, a Background Image will not appear on the pages of output produced by an external PDF being added to the template through an Embed Document Element.

For more information about Embed Document Elements, see the topic Document Designer Elements.
