When trying to find help for formatting page background for colour or watermark the Help file refers to "Background" tab when this no longer exists. The "Background" tab seems to have been replaced with "Area" tab but this is not shown in Help.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Search for background
3.Double click Background search result
1. Choose Format - Page.
2. On the Background tab page, select a background colour or a background graphic.
Help should show:
1. Choose Format - Page.
2. On the Area tab page, select a background colour or a background graphic.
