Default Word 2007 - Newsletter Template

I would like to use the "Health Stylish Design" newsletter template
provided with Word. Is there a way to change the border and
background colors? Thank you in advance for any assistance!

Unfortunately, that newsletter design is an excellent example of how NOT to
create a Word template.

The colored areas at the top and bottom of each page, and some of the
"picture frames", are parts of a single 8.5x11" picture. Everything else you
see is text in various text boxes floating over the background picture.

To change the colors, you would have to take the background picture from the
document and modify it in a graphics program, or just delete it and replace
it with a picture of your own creation. If you have any facility with Word,
I'd recommend starting from scratch and using the downloaded template only
as a visual guide for making a proper layout. See
http://www.word.mvps.org/FAQs/Custom...platePart1.htm for
some tips.
