    Great, however when I select a background color for this page, the background color selected appears on every other page in the document. How can I restrict this color just to the cover page?

    Thank you.

    using word 2011. I can create and save a custom cover page. The components are saved but not the background color. If I use the cover page and then add background color to it, ALL pages get the BG color. How do I assign a BG color to cover page ONLY, and not to the rest of pages in document? URGENT!
