Book problem, background deleted? #1

Strange as it sounds, its all I can think of.  I’m designing a 10x10” book in Aperture, and on some pages I cannot any longer specify a background color.  Some pages I can, others I can’t.  All I can think of is some pages I had droped in a photo as a background and then changed my mind and deleted it from the page.  Its almost as if I’ve deleted the background itself.  I can’t set a color nor drop a picture onto the background any longer on those pages.  Any ideas?

That seems odd.

Delete the page in the document and add a new page in its place maybe?

As a work around add a photo box from the edit layout pane and stretch it to fill the page.

As far as setting the color, I make a custom color image in PS and import it into the Aperture project for the  book.  I have a folder of colors, textures, scrims, grain effect, etc. that I can drag into book projects.

Odd indeed.  I was able to reload the master page in some instances and make things work again.  For one page (custom layout) I had to make a new identical master page and switch master pages to get a background again.
