You can use background (fill) color to emphasize certain fields on a printed form. For example, you can:
Add background color to your company name on the printed form.
Create a drop shadow for a field by layering one color on top of another and offsetting the top field.
Note: These changes show when printed (you can see them in the Preview window), but they do not show when you fill out the form onscreen.
To do this task
Open the Layout Designer.
Double-click the object to which you want to add the background color.
In the Properties window, click the Background
Select the Fill Background checkbox and then click
the Background Color field.
In the Change Color window, click the color to
use and then click OK.
Click OK to close the Properties
The background color shows in the Layout Designer
(Optional) To move the object in front of or in back of another object
on the printed form:
Single-click and then right-click the object to move.
Choose Order, and then
click Bring Forward (to move the object in front of another object on
the form) or Send Backward (to move the object behind another object).
Click OK to close the Layout Designer
Your changes appear in the Preview section of the Additional Customization window. To see a larger image of the form, click Print Preview.
Note: These changes show only when you print the form—not onscreen.
Click OK to close the Additional Customization window.
