Create a background page

You can use a background page to add common elements to multiple pages in your drawing. Add shapes or graphics to the background page as you would any other page, or add one of the pre-designed background shapes from the Backgrounds stencil (on the File menu, point to Shapes, point to Visio Extras, and then click Backgrounds).

  1. Right-click a page tab Page tab in the lower-left part of the window, and then click Insert Page.
  2. Click the Page Properties tab, and then click Background.
  3. Click the Drawing Scale tab to change the scale or the Page Size tab to change the page size for the new page.
