This was so easy in Pro v9 ..... but now I have Pro DC and it's a nighmare trying to figure out where everything has moved to or even if something that was possible still is possible in DC.

---

When adding a text box I used to be able to right-click the box and set attributes such as the background colour and the level of transparency.

Now in Acrobat Pro DC there seems to be no way to add text other than in a transparent box !!

Does anyone know how I can add text (in a text box) AND set a background colour (ie. white) so that the underlying text/image is "replaced" by what I am adding?

Select the box itself and press Ctrl+E. You'll be able to set its fill color in the floating toolbar that will open.

Hi there,
Could you please let us know if you still face the issue? Please make sure you select the text box(a grabber appears around the text box when the text box is in selection mode) and then right click to goto Properties dialog to set background and fill colour.
If you are in text insertion mode, the above properties dialog does not appear. You need to first deselect the text box and then click on the boundary of the text box to select it.

Regards,
Arvind
