Text boxes in Layout

When I type a heading or text on my Layout drawing it then fills the box with grey making it difficult to read. Have I inadvertently clicked something which has done this?

Maybe you have selected a gray fill in Shape Style. Select the text box and deselect Fill. Does that fix it?

Thanks very much that’s exactly what I’ve done but I now have a box around the text - do you know how I can remove this, I tried clicking the unbounded icon on text but it’s still there.

Deselect Stroke in the Shape Style window while the text box is selected.

Thanks again - I love this forum!

Happy to help.

It speaks highly of you, too. :smiley:
