Word 2000 Windows XP

I have some bits of text with a grey background, conclusions from a document already published in EN. So I want to copy and paste the original, then reproduce the grey background, but I can't figure out how it's done. It's not in a box or a table, just has a grey background.

TIA:-)

First check please, if this grey background is printed Jun 25, 2005

To do so, simply switch to print preview mode. (Use the magnifying glas on your tool bar)

If no, then these are for sure fields and the grey background is activated to show you, that they are fields.
To switch this on/of go to Tools, Options, View and select/deselect this option for fields.

If this is not the case and you have just text on grey background, which should be printed, select (mark) the text, which should appear on grey background, and use either your table tool bar (symbol for filling) or go to Format, Frames and shadowing and chose proper option there.

And once again - if you don't see something or can't find it, ask Word for help. Due to language differencies between my and yours Word (and the lack of knowledge on my side, how your Word behaves, which tool bars and buttons you have) it is impossible to tell you all steps in step-by-step order. Thank you.

Regards
Jerzy

2. Go to Format, then Borders and Shading

3. Select the colour you want to apply to the paragraph from the colour palette shown.

You can also remove the shading from a paragraph in the same way. Slect No fill in Step 3 above.
