Text background colour

Postby JakeMM » Wed Aug 21, 2019 6:05 pm

Hi,

I've pasted some text into Layout on a Mac, but it's come in with a block colour behind the text.

I can't work out how to remove this! I'm sure it's something simple, but I see no option within the font control, and no options within the shape window.

If you select the text box, does turning off Fill in Shape Style take care of it?

Where did you copy the text from? Is it coming in as an image?

Hi Dave,

The Fill control still controls the colour of the text box, but it doesn't affect the background colour of the text.

I copied it from a website.

As a short term fix, I'll have to copy the text into another program, fix it and then copy it back. Maybe there isn't the ability to set background text colour in Layout? Only a background colour for the text box itself?

How about sharing the file so I can see what you are working with?
