Setting text background colour in a style

(1/1)

mintra:
Hi

If I set a character style, within the paragraph styles then I can make it work, I can change the font and type style and colour of the font, can I change the font background colour for the paragraph, if so how

Christen_Anderson:
After you create your text box, go to the Properties Palette, go to the "Colors" tab, and you can set the fill color from there.

HTH,
Christen

Nermander:
But he did not ask for changing the color of the text box, but for a paragraph.

Christen_Anderson:
oh. heh i guess i should have read the question a little more carefully. hmm.....have to think on that one....

Nermander:
I don't think it is possible, yet. One reason probably is that it is hard (for the devs) to decide what the height of the color band shall be based on line height and leading. I think it must be user configurable, with selectable values (may be fixed or relative units) for Above baseline and Below baseline.
