    One of the template I need to use in Pages 09 has a nice cover page but the background is burgundy. I need to change to something else. I have click everywhere on out side edge but I cannot edit the background. It shows the fill icon with a blue image looking thing but when I click on the fill icon I cannot select a color. The "define as media place holder" is grayed out. Any suggestions? Thanks

    I'm having the same problem! I tried using the inspector but it's all greyed out for the background fill colour and won't let me change it.

    Change background of Pages 09 template

    I didn't see this info in the link that SavMBP15 posted, so I thought I'd share it here. If you use a template in Pages 09 that has a background color you don't want, the way to remove it is this: Go to the "Format" menu, then choose "Advanced/Make Master Objects Selectable". When this option is checked, you can go back to the document and click near the edge of the page and the background will be selected. Then hit delete and it's gone!
