Change stage background color

I'm wondering if there's a way to change the background color
of the area behind the stage. On my monitor, it's a little hard to
tell the difference between the white and light gray.
Thanks.

Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear.
While working in Flash, I have a hard time distinguishing the
stage from the area around it. I know how to change the background
color, but want to know if there's a way to change the color of the
area around it instead. I'm guessing there isn't, as it seems it
would have presented itself in the menus I've looked in by
now.

  • I have trouble reading in Black and White. changing the background color for all

    I have trouble reading in Black and White. On my PC I can change the background  color (and I am not just talking about for a word or pages document) but for eveything so anything that was a white background I can put in what ever color I like but it still prints in Black and white.. I can't see how to do this on the Macbook air. on my PC I do this in display. Sort of putting colored film over the screen I dont know what to do. Can anyone help?

    Hello Floridamacbookpro,
    You may be interested in the 'invert colors' Accessibility feature. This can be invoked by pressing the Control, Option, Command, and 8 keys on your keyboard. This only affects your display, and does not have any affect on printed items.
    Mac OS X displays inverted image colors (white on black, reverse type)

  • How to change the background color only for one HTML-Portlet?

    Hi all,
    I have created a HTML-Portlet in my root-page. The root page have a style: Main-Style.
    I want to change the background-color only for this one HTML-Portlet:
    <html>
    <header><title>Test</title></header>
    <body bgcolor="#999999">
    Test
    </body>
    </html>
    But this does not work...
    When I use the CSS, then it will change the background-color for the root-page too.
    Thans
    Leonid Pavlov

    could you try this
    <table bgcolor="#999999">
    <tr>
    <td>
    test
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    I don't think you need <html><header><title>Test</title></header>
    <body></body></html> for your HTML-Portlet.

    Hi Burke,
    Here's the result, using Peggy's suggestion:
    Process:
    Click on the thin strip of red to the left of the title ("THE THOMPSONS") to select the background.
    You'll see the small x in each corner, indicating the object is locked.
    Go Arrange > Unlock (or press option-command-L) to unlock the object.
    Click on the Fill Color well in the format bar, and choose a new colour from the palette.
    Go Arrange > Lock (or press command-L to re-lock the object.
    Save the result.

  • How can I change fullscreen background color, so that it is the same when viewing on mac and iPad? I want this to be able to use MathType in widget text.

    How can I change fullscreen background color, so that it is the same when viewing on mac and iPad? I want this to be able to use MathType in widget text.
    As an example, html widget has white background on iPad, and black on mac. The same goes for interactive widget.
    The MathType text inserted is inserted as a image, and will have the same color when in fullscreen as when not. So I need the textcolor to be the same in both views. Anyone know how to fix this?

    We're still not communicating. This is why I wanted an example .iba.
    Here's a re-creation of my own, going off what you described. You said "all html widgets and all gallery widgets" have this problem. So I inserted a blank HTML widget and a blank Gallery widget, and typed into both. Inserted a MathType equation into both. I don't see any difference when I preview it on my Mac compared to the preview on the iPad. I want to help, but I can't help if I can't duplicate the issue.
    I've attached the screen shots and the .iba file [link to .iba file].
    Feel free to email me directly at bobm at dessci dot com. If you're uncomfortable giving some information here, tell me anything you want in email. I work for the "MathType company", Design Science.

  • How to change the background color of a sequence?

    I'm using Premiere Pro CS5 on Win7 x64.  I've imported a JPEG that's a different size than my 1920 x 1080 frame.  The background of this JPEG is white, but the background of the sequence is black (by default), so the borders of the JPEG make it stand out.  I want the JPEG to blend into the sequence background by making the sequence background white.  How can I change the sequence background color?  Thanks.

    Jim and Ann are correct. I can see where someone used to After Effects might ask that question though because in AE you can change the background color of the composition. Same with Photoshop.
    However, I think it would confuse things if changing the background color were to be allowed in Premiere Pro. Black tells me something. I suppose white could tell me the same thing, but at this time it is not possible in Premiere Pro.

  • How to change the background color of  a Tab Canvas

    Hi All,
    I accidentally changed existing background color of a tab Canvas to ' gray' which is not matching with main canvas (which has default).
    How can I change background color to default. Please help me.
    -Thanks

    In the property palette of the tab page, click on the "Background Color" property and click the "Inherit" button on the top of the property palette, this will revert the value of the property to the default when the tab page was created which is <Unspecified>.
    But if your tab page has inherited the color from a property class it will revert to what was specified in the property class.

  • How to change the background color of a cell based on other cell background

    Hi,
    Sorry if this is a basic question - I am new to XML. I want to create a table column, with no data in it. I then want to change the background color of the column based on the background color of other columns. I.E.
    - If there are 3 or less cells in this row that are not green, color this cell green.
    - If there are 4 or less cells in this row that are not green, and 3 or less are not red, color this cell yellow.
    - If there are 4 or less cells in this row that are not green, and 3 or more are red, color this cell red.
    If there are 5 or more cells in this row that are not green, color this cell red.
    Many thanks for any assistance.

    Okay - I have this resolved.
    1. Create two variables (Yellow and Red):
    <?xdoxslt:set_variable($_XDOCTX, 'Yellow', 0)?>
    <?xdoxslt:set_variable($_XDOCTX, 'Red', 0)
    2. For each cell, set the background based on their individual traffic light criteria, and update the associated color variable by 1. By default the backgrd color is set to Yellow so I only have to check for the lower and upper bounds:
    <?choose:?>
    <?when:number(CHECKED_IN)<=1?>
    <[email protected]:background-color;'Lime'?>
    <?end when?>
    <?when:number(CHECKED_IN)>3?>
    <[email protected]:background-color;'Red'?>
    <?xdoxslt:set_variable($_XDOCTX, 'Red', xdoxslt:get_variable($_XDOCTX, 'Red') +1)?>
    <?end when?>
    <?otherwise?>
    <?xdoxslt:set_variable($_XDOCTX, 'Yellow', xdoxslt:get_variable($_XDOCTX, 'Yellow') +1 )?>
    <?end otherwise?>
    <?end choose
    3. I now want a cell that is Red if any of the cells in the row is red. Its yellow of there are 3 or more yellow cells in the row, and no reds. Otherwise its green. First, create an empty cell and make the default color green. Then add:
    <?if: number(xdoxslt:get_variable($_XDOCTX,'Red')) > 0?>
    <[email protected]:background-color;'Red'?>
    <?end if?>
    <?if: number(xdoxslt:get_variable($_XDOCTX,'Yellow')) >= 3 and number(xdoxslt:get_variable($_XDOCTX,'Red')) = 0?>
    <[email protected]:background-color;'Yellow'?>
    <?end if?>
    4. Finally, reset the variables for the next row:
    <?xdoxslt:set_variable($_XDOCTX, 'Yellow', 0)?>
    <?xdoxslt:set_variable($_XDOCTX, 'Red', 0)

  • Why can't I change the background color of my UIView in IB?

    I have a rootController which controls several other ***ViewController's and I have been doing the usual thing by changing the background color in IB.  However, for one controller, I cannot change it's background color from the default no matter what I do.
    To be clear, each new controller created has been done in the same manner using the UIViewController subclass with nib file.
    I have cleaned the project and deleted the app from my iPhone countless times and still no change.
    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I'm replying to myself because I cannot see your post ??????
    From my email- KT said:
    "Typically, when a same-only different controller acts up like this, the first thing to do is to rewire - sounds like you've gone down that path tho.
    Can you duplicate one of the cooperative controllers, add it to the mix and see if things change there?"
    I've tried all of that several times.  I have no idea.  Maybe some sleep will help it and me.
