Text rectangle border

Postby CATERAF on Sun Aug 11, 2013 11:22 pm

Hi,

I am using the text rectangle tool and would like to just have the text with no background or rectangle border.
I made the background transparent and I set the 'line' width to 0.

It does make my background transparent but it won't remove the rectangle border..it leaves a thin 1px grey border.

This is the second time I have tried it and with no success either time (using different images, different days of use, etc).

Can anyone help please? :)

Thanks,
Avril

That thin gray border might just be in the editor so you can find that object and manipulate it. Do this test: print the image or place it into a file. Do you still see that gray rectangle? I'm guessing not.

Thanks Nita.
I think it was still showing when I put the image into Flare but unfortunately I now can't get it to replicate the issue. Very odd seeing as I've had it occur several times over the course of a month.
If it happens again I will try as you said :-)

Thanks,
Avril

I see this artifact in my PDF targets, whether I set the border to zero pixels, or one pixel, color matched to the white background.

I figured it out.

The image background was transparent and transparency in any Capture element (text blocks, for example) seems to cause problems in Adobe Reader.

Under File Properties > Appearance, give the image a solid background and this ghostly line goes away.

I'm having this same issue. I tried the solid background fix, and still seeing grey lines around all text boxes. They don't appear in Capture or in the Flare editor, but they do appear in all printed output previews and PDF outputs.
