Is there a way to add a gradient to background?

Hi Cambriambts
Unlike DC or BCC, SP has no way to fill a shape with gradient.
What you may try is to use Art Text (Insert>Art Text (from SP)), using a rectangular shape and filling it with gradient.
It seems that you can adjust the size of this shape in SP without gradient distortion.
Hoping that this feature will be added to SP3.

I see this feature did not make SP3 :( - pretty basic feature missing in such a good program.

It is in the future?

update the art text worked for now - nice alternative

Hi
It's now possible to fill shapes with a linear/radial gradient:

Not sure when it was added but this is present in SP v3.1.
If you need to fill the whole background of a page, use a (rectangular) shape with the page dimensions.
