Text is not diplayed

If I write a new text in a FrameMaker 2017 file, the cursor moves according my entries, but now text is visible, only white paper at the new entries. Despite I use an existing file with text in it.

It also happens typing the new text in the middle of  an existing text in black, the new inputs are not displayed.

Have you got some character tag applied to your text that is setting white text on a white background?

Hello Jeff,  I have no character tag applied.

And it happens in the complete document of 28 pages, independent from the character format or paragraph format

Hi,

 

I had noticed something like this only, when text was overlapping, e.g. with special indents or negative spacing above below and side head text.

Is there anything special in your text?

What happens, when you apply another paragraph format and then type your text?

 

Best regards

Hm. Do you get this behaviour also in new files? And also with all existing files?

When you restart FrameMaker and restart Windows?

Do you use the structured files?

Can you do a MIF wash and then try again? This means save as MIF, open the MIF and then save as FM file again.

 

Best regards

Hi @default6lcaqb6oe0zo:

 

Check View > Color > Views. Is the color assigned to the Cutout or Invisible Column? If so, move it to the first column.

 

Otherwise, I would save your file (so that you can revert) and select Find Paragraph Format Overrides/Change All and Find Character Format Overrides/Change All in Edit > Find/Change. That will tell you if overrides are in play. Once the text is visible, use File > Revert to revert back to the last saved version and selectively remove the overrides.
