Background color on pasted text (highlight style)

Recommended Posts

On iPad Pro, Affinity Designer

After pasting text from a web page on a Frame Text area, the background color (white) came with other formatting (font, size etc). It displayed as a white strip in each line of text (like highlight on a Word processor). See attached image.

I didn't find where to change background color on text. The option is not available on iOS (as it is in Mac OS, see below).

As a workaround, I've pasted the text in Google Keep and copied from there.

On Mac OS, Affinity Designer

Text pastes without the background and the text Character pallete shows color options for both foreground and background color. See image

I'm having the same issue with the desktop Mac OS version. Is there not a fix for this yet? I've recently switched to this Affinity suite from the Adobe Creative Suite, but this is extremely frustrating as a book designer. The ability to cut and paste text is pretty critical. If this could be addressed in the next upgrade, that would be helpful.

I got around this by first pasting the text into either a code editor like sublime or something like pages on a mac, then pasting back into AP. Works fine.

same problem :/ here using mac,  1.7.3 affinity version

I can't show to my students how to make a logo design using text because of this bug :/
it's is not possible to remove the highlight when insert text, even on the warp line inserting the text over.

I hope the dev team solve this soon, thanks
