Page Number, Header or Footer with Background?

Post by Pager » Fri Oct 23, 2020 7:41 am

Hello,

is it possible to get an Background (for example a white rectangle behind the text) behind the Page Number, Header or Footer?

For example, you can no longer see the footer (written in black) if the spot there is dark in color.

Thank you very much

Greetings

Hello Pager,

Welcome to our forum.


You can't set a background directly, but you can set a different color of the numbers and and probably add Stroke to make the number even more visible:

Indirectly, you can use this tool to add a background but it will require a lot of manual work if the pages are many:

Also, you may try to draw a rectangle, flatten it, and then duplicate it to all the pages.

Thank you very much for your tips.

It's a "shame" that you can't set a rectangle as a background around the text, for example.

But i think i try the first tip from you with the Stroke, because i have a lot of pages.

We will see what can be done about adding such a feature to our product in the future.

If it is possible, it will be added.

Thanks for the good service.

If i use the tip with the stroke there is a litle Problem, that it the stroke width is too wide the text will be cut off

Hello Pager,

You can try a slightly larger font size - so that the stroke does not cut of the numbers - and still make them easier to read!

Kind regards,
Stefan
