any color you like. This will not, however, be exported to the PDF or
print on your local printer. You might use this when you plan to have
your document printed on some color stock, so that when you're working
in Scribus you can see something resembling the final result, subject,
of course to the same potential mismatch between screen and your paper
stock that you generally face with color management.
So, to actually export or print a background color, you have to make a
page-sized background frame of one kind or another.
