Hi everybody,

I'm sorry to ask a probably simple question:

When I use the 'artistic text' tool, the letter are shown in pink color regardless of the Font Colour setting in the panel. The text shows the chosen color only if I switch to 'Preview Mode'.

When I use the 'Frame Text Tool' the letters are shown in their original color. There is just a pink frame around the text. As soon as I switch to 'Preview Mode' the pink frame disappears.


Is there a way to get rid of the Pink Colour for artistic text in Non-Preview Mode. It looks ugly and is distracting but I don't want to work in Preview Mode.


Thanks for help

Hi wuerdentraeger,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
To turn the pink outline off go to menu View ▸ Snapping Manager... and change the Candidates dropdown to anything other than Candidate List.

The purple (pink) outlines indicate the objects are snapping candidates. To learn more about this feature please check this video tutorial: Snapping: Candidates
