I would like to change the background colour of a map to another colour. At the moment it is white, I would like to change it to grey, blue etc... for different projects.
Is this already possible in Vue 3.3.0?

It is possible to change the background color. However, some export format doesnt support it very well. JPEG do it, but PDF only color a rectangular part of the background. It sucks since using a PDF save for mobile usage is very pratical and ressource friendly as compared to a JPEG. It also permit fast information retrieval with Ctrl+F. The problem seems to go unnoticed or unadressed for a while now, and I would be very glad if it could be resolved, as it hampered the visual appeal of the maps I create considerably (white background is not so nice on the eyes).

Thank you Mathieu Cloutier, I took a further look around through every menu item, and finally found it (In 'Windows' > 'Map Info').

I've attached a screen shot, in case anyone else is looking for this feature.
