Basic adornment color question
Aug 30th, 2014, 8:27am
 
I must have had another chunk of my brain peel off and vanish but I can't recall how to do this, or wonder if it's changed or something: how to create an adornment in a map to use as a title with no visible background to the adornment? Setting opacity to 0 has been obliterating both the adornment and the title text of the adornment (I thought that had worked); an old forum note suggests using "translucent" but I can't figure out how to make that work if it's still around. There are various attributes in the list with the name "color" but nothing seems to quite fit. Suggestions appreciated.

Thank you.

One way is...

Cmd-1 to bring up the inspector, fourth panel along (Appearance Inspector), choose the 'Interior' tab, then set Color to 'transparent'.

It seems to work for me, anyway.

Thanks, David.

I'd add that then one should remember that you also have to then locate the Text Inspector (to the right) to set the text, since default may be white and you might like something else.

FYI, the default colour of $NameColor of an adornment title is 'automatic' rather than white. It attempts to use white or black to give sufficient contrast if the $Color of the adornment is changed. If you are changing the adornment's $Color and it won't change again, than it may make sense to pick a new $NameColor if you want other than black or white text.
