I need to hyphenate my black text with a transparent white background, because my text should be places on top of a photo.

I would normally use "paragraph rules" og "paragraph shades" for this effect, but this is not possible with at white transparent colour.

Any suggestions on how to solve this, without having one coloured-box behind one test-box?

You can set the text frame to automatically fit the line length. this setting and the background pacity can be part of an object style settings, so you would just have to draw the text frame and choose the object style.Capture d’écran 2020-07-16 à 13.22.46.jpgCapture d’écran 2020-07-16 à 13.22.57.jpgCapture d’écran 2020-07-16 à 13.23.34.jpg

If I understand what you are trying to do, you can put the white color in the text box, and adjust the fill transparency separately from the text. Use an inset in the text box to create a bit of space around the text. Like this:

You don't need to have two frames: fill the text frame with a white background and use the fx panel to set the frame background opacity as you wish.Capture d’écran 2020-07-15 à 15.00.46.jpg

Thanks.

I´m creating a templete, and the black tekst on the transparent white background, will need to change content and length from time to time. To make sure that the space around the text and white boxes are the same every time, i would love to make at paragraph style on the text, so that the white boxes follow the black text.

It has to look like this - just with a 80% transparent white box behind til text.

Hi TineBS,

thank you for sharing your text design.

You could do it with a couple of text frames with one line of text each where the text frames are threaded.

 

For the adjustment of the width of each line of text you have to set different width for each text frame. The fill of the text frames should be [Paper] with a reduced opacity done with the Effects panel where you can control the transparency of the fill individually independenltly from the text in the frame.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

Thank you for your response.

Unfortunately this is not optimal, but probably the best solution. Hope that it in future versions af InDesign, will be possible to choose transparency on white paragraph rules 🙂
