I use paintbucket to insert a darkened background. It usually just takes a couple of clicks to make a uniform color background. One day I changesd msoforeground image. me of the settings and now it no longer works that way - I lose parts of the foreground image. Are ther default settings for paintbucket? Thanks for any assistance
With the Paintbucket tool selected, try resetting the tool. Here is a screenshot from version 14. It should be the same. It's found under the "hamburger button" in the lower right of the Tool Options bin.
