This article explains how to insert a graphic file or object and use it as a background page in your Microsoft Visio drawing.
A Visio drawing contains at least one foreground page and may also contain one or more backgrounds. A background is a page that appears behind another page. Because a background page can be shared by more than one page, you can create a background page when you want the same shape or shapes to appear on more than one page in your Visio diagram. For example, you can place a common graphical element, such as a company logo, on a background. This element then appears on each page to which you assign the background.
To insert a graphic file or object from another program and use it as a background in your Visio drawing, follow these steps:
To edit the shapes on a background, click the background page tab to display the background in your drawing page window, and then edit it the same way that you edit a foreground page.
