I'm going crazy trying to figure out how to remove what appears to be a shadow around my text in In Design. When I change the color of the text it's very clear that there appears to be an outline around the text as if I purposely outlined the text with a different color. The strike line looks like it's white on the inside with the color on the outside as you can see my
screenshot. The second screenshot is is what the word looks like. As you can see it is very fuzzy like it has a shadow or an outline around it. I'm sure this is a very simple fix but I'm new to InDesign so it's not clear to me.
You have outline color selected. Click on the solid T (behind the outline) to set the color of the text. To remove the outline color, select the T in front, the outline (like in your screenshot) then select the color [none] to remove the outline.
Second: learn the basics of InDesign, buying a book for example about using InDesign as this is a very, very basic question... ;-)
