    I'm trying to create pages that have all black backgrounds. I've been doing this by using the Shapes tool, choosing a rectangle, filling in the entire white space for the page, which is 8x11, and then filling in with black.

    The problem is that when I do this, Pages seems to think that I want this page and the following page to be connected, in some way. When I look at the two pages in the thumnail view, the yellow outline is around both pages, rather than each individually.

    Anybody know how to keep this from happening. Or the right way to create full black backgrounds for pages in Pages?

    Possible Solution

    I'm not sure what you are trying to do but the following will result in a completely black page.\

    Open the Inspector and set all margins, headers and footers to 0in.
    Click on the Text tab and then the more button. Select a background fill for paragraph and make the color black.

    Go back to your document and press the enter key. Each press of the key will result in a black line. Enough of these and the entire page is black.

    Alternatively, this thread gives another way.
