    White frame around background

    I do printed Ppt presentations and have tried using different backgrounds. They always look good on the screen, but print out with a white background. How can I get rid of the white background?

    Re: White frame around background

    Check your print options (File | Print). It sounds like the 'Grayscale' tick box is set. Unset it to print in full colour.
    Alternatively, the 'Pure Black and White' tick box might be set in which case you have to unset that box, then unset the Grayscale tick box (Setting Pure black and White also sets the Grayscale box and greys it out)
    Hmmmm - a greyed out Grayscale box. Of course - what other colour would one use?

    Re: White frame around background

    Thank you for your efforts, however the problem is not solved. I would like to explain the problem in more detail.

    I wish to have a slide with a background pattern. In order to do this, I follow these steps:

    format / background / click on arrow below background fill / fill effects / texture (select any texture) / OK / apply

    You should now have a texture on a slide. If you print this without "pure black and white" or "grascale" selected, you will have a white border around the texture.

    If you select "scale to fit paper", the border will be smaller, but still there.

    If you change the "slides sized for" box to "custom" and change the margins to 11 x 8.5, the border will be smaller still, but still there.

    I cannot get rid of it. Any other suggestions.
    Thank you

    Re: White frame around background

    OK - I see what you are on about now and I don't know how to get rid of this. I have always assumed that this was a function of printers in that they cannot print right to the edges of the paper.
    If it can be done, this is the forum to get the answer!
    Sorry I can't help

    I'm going to agree with Brian and his printers comment.
    Except, check your page setup dialog. I've found that sometimes the wrong page setup can leave a border.

    Thank you all for your help.

    I am going to experiment with the presentation in Microsoft Publisher. There has to be a way!

    Re: White frame around background

    If it's good on the screen it's usually in the print settings, of course.

    Usually something like that can be rectified at the Tools/Options/backgroud printing (toggle on)
    or in your printer driver..

    Naturally, your printer settings could derail the whole thing by printing pure black and white.

    You may also want to investigate your master slide and make sure everything in there is hunky dory too.
