Text Background alpha.

by RS360VTS » Wed Nov 13, 2013 12:02 pm

Hi,

The text area can have various colours and alpha levels, but the background of the Text box cannot.
It is possible to change the background colour, or to have a coloured highlight to the text, but I would like the text to be on a transparent background.
Is this possible? Any ideas?

If not, can it be a feature in future versions of PTP2?

Which 'text area' are you talking about?

Hi Martin,

The Description widget is OK, colour and alpha can be changed, but if you want a scene description as controlled by clicking on each pano in the Tour tabs, and editing the Description box, you can change the colour of the font, size and style, even add a text highlight colour, which gets rid of the white background, but I cannot see how to have just the text on a transparent background with no background or highlight.

regards

Into the PTP Interface, panorama properties > Description ?
Text background in the text component is white, but if you set the alpha of the Description plugin (added from the Style view) to 0, background will be invisible into the tour.

Hi Benji

I have tried what you say, but the result is shown in the attached image.
Transparent Box, Transparent Text Area BUT highlighted Text...

I just was plain text on a completely clear background with no highlighting.
Any ideas?

Do you have tried to highlight text before ?

If yes need to restore an empty description before write again because hightlight can't be removed once selected, even if put white.

My sample on image below.

Thanks Benjamine,

That was the solution.... because I had tried the highlight, all I could do was change the colour of the highlight, just could not delete it.

By typing new text, the problem is solved.

Many Thanks

That Description editor is really very poor.

There's got to be something better than this available?

Into the editor, the last icon is "Remove formatting" so you can select text and remove all formatting and highlight for text selected.

Hi!

I'm holding thumbs for a helpful response!

The Rich Text Editor in this software is giving me a hard time because my text is constantly being highlighted, and there's no apparently simple solution to solve this.

I'm working with plain text from a text editor, as well as rich text, and copying from a web page.

All of the above options are subject to the same eventual formatting problems.

Has anyone here any advice to solve this problem?

I need either a 'remove formatting' tool, or an 'alpha' value to clear the highlighting issue.

My problem is much the same as described by the original post in this forum.
