Applying a text or paragraph background color

There are two options when applying a background color to text - Text Background & Paragraph Background. The former, Text Background will apply a background to just the text whereas Paragraph Background will apply it to the whole paragraph.

To apply a text background or paragraph color:

  • Highlight some text using the Text tool or select text object(s) using the Selector Tool
  • Right-click on a color in the Color line
  • Select Set Text Background to highlight just the word, or Set Paragraph Background to highlight the whole paragraph

To get rid of the background color...

  • Select your text
  • Right-click on the 'no color' swatch on the Color Line
  • Select the Clear Text Background or Clear Paragraph Background option

You can also apply a text background color on top a paragraph background color.
