Adding a Background Colour to Rows and Columns

A feature of rows and columns in the Sales Quote Editor is the ability to set a solid background colour or image behind content contained in a row or column.  This user guide topic covers the background colour feature of rows and columns.

Add a background colour to a row

In the Sales Quote Editor insert a text block (as shown below), this will automatically create a row containing one column that contains the text block.

Now hover over the text block to display the Row and Column tool bars (as shown below).  

Click on the cogs icon as highlighted in the screenshot below.

After you click on the cogs icon you will see a popup window appear (as shown below).

Click on the Background tab

Click on the drop down field Background Style, and choose the value Single Colour.

You will now see a colour selector tool appear, this tool will let you choose the colour you want to set as your background colour.

You can now choose to click on the colour palette to select a colour, or type (cut & paste if preferred) the hexadecimal (Hex) colour reference in the input field (as shown below the example of #1d1d1d).

Hex is a 6-digit, 24 bit, hexidecimal number that represents Red, Green, and Blue. An example of a Hex color representation is #12345612 is Red, 34 is Green, and 56 is Blue. There are 16 million possible colors.

After selecting your Hex Colour value, click on the Choose button to set this colour.

Finally, click on the Save button to save and close the popup window.

As shown in our example above you will see the background of the row set to the colour you have selected.

Add a background colour to a column

Setting the background colour for a column is exactly the same process as described above for a row.  However, you need to select the cogs icon from the column tool bar as shown below.

Click on the Background tab, and then follow the same procedure as described above for setting the background colour of a row.
