Text Editor background picture

By default, Aml Pages uses the text editor background picture. The general view of the text editor is shown in the figure below. But the tastes are different. Many people prefer to use a different background picture or disable it at all. You can disable the background picture by unchecking the "View \ Background picture" menu.

In some cases the text editor can work much faster without a background picture. Besides, a background picture can be the reason of flickering when scrolling text. To change the user interface themes, use the Themes plugin.
