Weird coloring of shapes
« on: August 14, 2017, 07:24:56 AM »
Hi,
the shape i posted has the following problem:
when u colorfill it, the small Text field gets filled in a way that makes it stand out.
How can i make it, so that that isnt happening (most importantly WHY is it happening)
thx!

Nice GIF, but why the original blind text?

Лорем ипсум долор сит амет, иус не елаборарет перципитур, сит те солум тинцидунт, сед ад омнис персецути. При виси епицуреи принципес но, вим синт дицит патриояуе ан.

That wasn what i meant, the text is supposed to have a white background (you can hide it via right click..)
The problem is, if you select the entire shape and fill it, the entire text field is always standing out (even when the text is currently idden)

There are two "fill" colors that apply to a shape with text.  The obvious fill / fillbackground for normal shape coloring.  Text has an additional coloring, a "highlighting".

From the GUI, you access this via Format > Text > Text Block.
From the shapesheet, just scroll down to the Text Block Format section, then the entry is TextBkgnd. 

If you want these to be the same color, then set the TextBkgnd = FillForegnd.

I think, I missexplained my problem. The Text background is supposed to be white, the text field should be filled with the same color like the overall shape, but it doesnt: (pictures are before/after fill)

1. Look at Developer Tab (Entwicklertools), select Show ShapeSheet ->Shape

2. Delete formulae in highlighted cells

After that changes you can make fill of inner shape as you want !
