right layout in Writer
It's not possible setup picture as page background (like watermark for whole A4 page including header and footer).
When I setup background picture in Format | Page - Bacground - Graphic, the picture fits to area where cells are only.. Half page for example..
I expect it can work like in Writer..
Here is my question on ask.libreoffice.org:

bad layout in Calc
I tested LibO 4.1.5 on XP/SP3.
Inserting via Format > Page > Background .... Considering that the image is only visible in a print out if cells are not formatted otherwise ( had a completely empty spreadsheet). I created a pdf-File (not pdf-export but using a pdf-printer) and got only a white pdf-file.
Made more clear that the problem is in Calc
Confirmed. Let's treat this as an enhancement, if no one objects.

In the attached file, cell A1 and B6 contains values, all other cells are blank.
The image page background only fits to the area A1:B6.
There should be an option for the user to choose whether the image should fit to the full page, or just the content area.
