Have you ever noticed in Visio how the text of your line connectors have white (not transparent) backgrounds by default? This means it “cuts” your line in half. Sometimes the background is good, such as when you have dark text on a dark background. What I want though is to enter text, a blank line and more text then have the line continue between them. Of course that’s not how it works though. It ends up just looking like this.
Here is what I want it to look like.
Here’s how to do it!
- Select one or more items you wish to create a transparent text background for.
- Right-click the item then select Format and then Text…
- In the Text dialog box that appears, select the Text Block tab.
- Under the heading Text background on this tag, select the None radio button.
- Click OK.
And now you should have a transparent background for the text on those items. Enjoy!
