Unremovable background color on all text.

Recommended Posts

It seems no matter what I try, I can't remove the background color behind any new text I create with the artistic or frame text tools. There's no styles applied, and no 'background color' set on either.

I tried restarting and reloading the file, and now it's even worse- the text doesn't show up at all despite it being fully opaque, and set to a bright color.

Hi Ralek,

The file opens with white visible for text for me, so I don't understand why it is not visible for you when reopening. EDIT: That said selecting the Transparency Tool shows some weird behaviour. If you click and drag with the Transparency Tool and then select 'None' from the Context Toolbar you should be ok.

Regarding the background colour, this is a known issue with development and can happen when you copy and paste text that used background formatting such as a website.

Hi Ralek,

My suggestion above was to see if that fixed the invisible text appearing when you reopened the file. To fix the background select the incorrect piece of text and go to Edit > Defaults > Factory Reset and then Edit > Defaults > Synchronize from Selection.

The first command will reset all the formatting, removing the background, and the second will ensure that newly created text objects are also fixed. You may have to do this for both Text Frame and Artistic Text objects if they're also affected.

Do you remember how you placed the text in the first place when it started behaving like that? Where was it pasted from?

I have the same issue and encountered it first weeks ago.

I draw rectangles, change their colors. Then I make a text frame and suddenly the text has unremovable background color. Next frames are faulty too.

It happens occasionally.

Publisher Text Frame studio fixes it. What about people who do not have Publisher?

They (and you) could use the method suggested by Sean P just above your post.

Following Sean's steps fixed it for me, and I'm glad cause I didn't want to have to move entire files a second time. Why does this happen? Is it a bug?

No one has yet said what they did to end up with the background, so we have no idea whether it is working as we should expect or whether there is a bug.

Also had this issue. Was tearing my hair out trying to figure out why it happened. I had simply clicked Artistic Text, clicked inside my artboard, and started typing. Deleted it, tried again, same issue. Closed the file, re-opened, tried again, same issue. Would not stop happening until I followed @Sean P's steps above.

Has to be a bug. I don't know how it could be "working as expected" when the Character pane clearly shows no background is applied to the text.

Edit: I'm on Mac, so it's an issue there, too.
