6) click on area tab
7) select fill as none

Also should be noted that the change in the page style isnt considered an undo-able action.

undo not active in toolbar

To clarify, it is considered an undo-able action with ctrl+z but not in the toolbar undo button.

Hi Jay,

1/ Area tab is background tab in previous version. I do not know why it has been renamed. Using word "Area" may be a good idea, if it was completed in "Text area" to underline the difference with the complete sheet area.

2/ undo-redo buttons are not completely inactive. Indeed if you play with the undo/redo menu entry two times, it becomes active.

3/ I do not reproduce your points 8-10, if I reset the area fill to none and click on Apply or Ok it works as expected.

Tested on Version: 4.4.0.0.alpha0+ (Build ID: 966fe14af2c8782d7f16f732a73761a60b345bb1) built at home under Ubuntu 14.04 x86-64

Best regards. JBF

Yes, of course. :-)

You need to click the Apply button after 7) and before 8)

I agree with JBF that Background was more specific. Set as New - Sophie

TESTING with Version: 5.1.0.0.beta2 on Ubuntu 14.04

Okay to this point

> 4.5) select a color
> 5) click on page tab and notice that the color is set in the preview

Considering steps 4.5 and 5 together:

If I click on 'Tango: Sky Blue 1' (which is already highlighted), and then click back to the Page tab, the preview does not update.

If I click on a *different* color (e.g. Tango: Sky Blue 2), and then click back to the Page tab, the preview *does* update and show a blue background on the document.

> 6) click on area tab
> 7) select fill as none
> 8) click on page tab and notice that color is still set
> 9) click ok button
> 10) page color gets set

CONFIRMED: Page color turns blue

Interestingly, if I return to 
* Format -> Page -> Area, the Fill dropdown is set to 'Color'
* Changing Fill to 'None', then 
* Clicking on the Area tab shows a White (no bg color) preview
* Clicking 'OK' confirms that the blue bg is indeed gone

It appears that one can toggle the color between blue and white like this repeatedly. We can even enable a different Fill by changing step (4) of the initial repro steps to "select Fill as 'Hatching'".
