Character and Paragraph Panels not working

Recommended Posts

The Character and Paragraph panels have become 'inactive'. They will not open. via dropdown or the menu boxes.

Have I switched to some operation mode or is this a glitch?

 

Thank you.

I just discovered that everything in View>Studio was greyed out.

I must have hit a keystroke, perhaps?

Anyway, issue solved, but I still cannot figure out how to put a background colour in a Text Box.

View > Studio > Text Frame.

Good point, Gabriel. Sorry for missing that distinction and for any confusion I've caused.

In Designer or Photo there are no functions for adjusting the background color of a Text Frame, as far as I know, except manual ones involving adding a rectangle behind the frame.

That makes it very clear. No text box background fill in Designer. Thank you Walt and Gabriel. I can stop looking for that option now.

Let's hope Affinity add this function soon. It's very useful when dropping text over art work, etc.

Cheers,

 

Andy
