Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding backgrounds, borders, and titles, part of Up and Running with Visio 2013.
Aside from selecting Themes, Color Schemes, Fonts, Special Effects, we can also…change the look or feel of a diagram by adding content to the background,…something in behind our diagram, like a Color or a Gradient or even an Image.…You may even want to add Borders and Titles and we're going to talk about how…that's done now, as we continue to work with our NoObstacles_OrgChart0303 file,…if you need to get caught up.…Now here we are zoomed out so we can see the entire page.…
I want to see the big picture here.…The default background as you can see is really nothing at all.…It's blank or white, but here with the Design tab selected, in the Background…section, we have a dropdown to select some presets.…Give it a click, and you'll see some colors and gradients based on the theme…you're using and color schemes, and as you scroll down, you'll see some more…graphical options as well.…For example, the World Map.…If our company was international, we might want to click the World Map to…apply to the background.…
