Change Text Color of a Group Box
« on: May 01, 2012, 08:14:43 AM »
Hello,

I am trying to change the Text Color of a Group Box from the default Blue to Red. I right click on the shape and select Format, Text, and select Red however this does not change the color at all. I have made sure that Protection is turned off on the shape. How can I change the color? Thanks!

It's possibly determined by a setting of one of the shapes within the group. Which shape is it?

The Shape is a "Group box" and is located in my Document Stencil. There has to be a way to change the Text color. I attached an example below.

That's an Excel document!

The color of the text has a guard formula on it.  The only way I could explore this shape was to copy and paste it into Visio.  Then, open the shapesheet, scroll down to the character section and remove the guard function.  Text can be re-colored as desired.

I could not access the shapesheet from within the Excel spreadsheet, had to do the copy and paste as indicated above.
