Hi There

I am a new user for indesign CC I have opened an old CS6 file in indesign CC and now my text frames have a solid white background? So when placed on top of a pic I cannot see the pic because of a white background text frame? How can I make the text frame transparent?

Hope someone can help

Cheers Pete

Is your text frame filled with white color?

I've put a white text frame on a blue background so you can see it change.

Select your text frame with the Black Arrow (Selection) tool. Open the Swatches panel (Window > Swatches). At the top left of the Swatches panel you can select the Fill (background) with the square icon. Below you can see it is filled with white (called Paper in InDesign):

Click on the None swatch (the one with the red slash). That will change it to No fill which is transparent:

I have the same problem, BUT, my text box has a NONE fill. The type itself has white behind the type ONLY. You can see bits of the background around the type. Even when I copy/paste into a new text box. Any ideas?

Thank you. I checked that as well. That was not the issue. I also checked to see if it was a Outer Glow Filter, but that also was not the case.
