Default How to create this layout (color fill from very top of page below heading)

I am trying to get a page layout in MS Word (2010) like this:





The important thing is to have this large blue rectangle for each heading (level 1). But I just don't manage to setup the page layout properly. There is always a white space or something like that (the picture is just a draft created with Photoshop)

Any ideas? Or is this impossible with MS Word? (I know, I could put a filled text field below each heading manually, but that's not an ideal solution)

Best,
Joe

Hi Joe,

Very few printers are capable of producing full-page colour bleeds. Almost all, except for photo printers, have an unprintable area around the paper edges. It really doesn't matter what application you use, the result will be much the same.

The layout it not for print but for a PDF which will mostly be viewed online.

So, my question remains: How to do this layout? any ideas?

Best,
Joe

Since it appears your 'Heading 1' Style starts on a new page, insert a 'Next Page' Section break before it and configure the Section on which it starts with a 'Different first page' layout. You can then insert a coloured rectangle into the page header, centred and positioned at the top of the page, with text wrapping set to 'behind text. Provided you make it high enough, it'll come down behind the Heading 1. It doesn't have to come all the way down to the bottom the the 'Heading 1' paragraph - pehaps just half way down the first line - you can shade the 'Heading 1' Style also so that correctly it finishes off the shaded range (especially useful if some of the headings span more than one line.
