The Premiere Pro user's guide says this:
Background: Change the background of the text by choosing the text, and clicking the Background color option.
I don't see any "background color option" when a text layer is selected. I've looked in the Essential Graphics and Effects control panels.
Is this a mistake in the documentation, or is there actually an option that applies color to the text box itself -- not to a rectangle object you draw behind the text.
So what your screen shot shows is interesting -- because it's not what I have. I do not have "Background" in the interface there.
Instead, on my screen, that option is labeled "Shadow." It applies a drop shadow/glow to the text.
I'm using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2019 on Windows 7. Could that be the difference?
Yes. You would need to be on the newer version.
Interesting: "I'm using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2019 on Windows 7. Could that be the difference?"
According to the Adobe page, minimum spec for PP2019 was: "Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) version 1703 or later"
I'm wondering how you got a version of 2019 to install on Win7?
I'm sorry, I was wrong -- I've been running Premiere CC 2018 on Windows 7.
I will have to upgrade to Windows 10 before installing the latest Premiere version.
I appreciate the help everyone.
