Changing Color of Callout

Recommended Posts

I Created a callout, added some text inside. 

Now, in the layer-panel, its called: (shape Text). stroke color and background color can not be changed anymore (from orange, to something else), even the callout options are still available. For me, it seems to be a bug. 

 

See scrrenshot.

Hi db1844,

It's not currently possible in AD, however, you can do it in APub using the Text Frame option which you will find under View > Studio. Once created you can then copy and paste it into Designer where you can continue to edit the text but you won't be able to change the background colour directly within AD.

As it can be achieved directly in Publisher, it isn't a bug so I don't think there is any need to post in the Publisher Bug Forum.

Your screenshots seem to be showing Designer as the active application from Studio Link within Publisher. The Fill option with Designer won't give you a background fill on a Shape Text box but if you are working in Publisher itself then you can achieve this using the Text Frame panel and selecting Fill from there...

How amazing is that. You solved that problem! Logically, i didn't get it, why the callout panel is not working. But whatever. Text-Frame-Box was not showing up. So newbies have to dig deep, to find the solution. Thanks for that awesome forum support!
