Hi, I'm using .AI CS6. I am trying to type something and the font color is set to black. But only shows up grey. But all other colors work fine. Document color is set to RGB, not CMYK, or Greyscale. I'm totally at a loss... My customer is needing this tomorrow. So a really fast correct reponse would be FANTASTIC. Been woring on this artboard for a little over an hour and can't do what I need done. I open new Artboards and the same problem persists.. I soo have no idea what the problem is....


Please someone HELP ME...

    1. Select type with hollow arrow tool as an object
    2. Set fill color to none
    3. If did not change to inivisible, select all charchters with type tool I beam, and set to none
    4. In appearance palette add new fill, set to RGB 255, 255, 255
    5. Make sure your transprancey is set to 100%, and color is set to 100%
