I am a new user for indesign CC I have opened an old CS6 file in indesign CC and now my text frames have a solid white background? So when placed on top of a pic I cannot see the pic because of a white background text frame? How can I make the text frame transparent?
Hope someone can help
Is your text frame filled with white color?
I've put a white text frame on a blue background so you can see it change.
Select your text frame with the Black Arrow (Selection) tool. Open the Swatches panel (Window > Swatches). At the top left of the Swatches panel you can select the Fill (background) with the square icon. Below you can see it is filled with white (called Paper in InDesign):
Click on the None swatch (the one with the red slash). That will change it to No fill which is transparent:
