Please, does anyone know why this happening? It's been happening to me off and on for years now.

So it is as if the background is missing? It appears to me that the default is a transparent background. Make sure that you have BOTH a color selected (e.g. Black) and. at the bottom of the list, Opaque, if that is what you intend. It is odd that the only indicator, once the selection is made, is the color.

If that is not the issue, please provide a screenshot of your timeline and the Essential Graphics panel with the caption selected.

Here is a screen capture. You can see that the text is set to White and background is set to Black.

Woah! Actually you just solved my problem.

I looked at the bottom of the Background Color list and there were settings for opaque and transparent.

I don't understand why they are grouped into an array for background color, but apparently you can select 2 things in the list: opaque and black.

THANK YOU!

Excellent!

 

I find it odd that I never noticed how easy that would be to miss.
