RETURN the feature of the TEXT BOX BEING FILLED COMPLETELY with the background, instead of just a portion.
COMPLETELY FILLED background in text boxes are ESSENTIAL for older people who are trying to read the words in congregational video music (required because of covid). Taking away that feature has left me in a tough spot as I work with shadowing, which is great, but does NOT have the same readability. It was there before the upgrade--just simply return it. Not sure why this is so hard.
Thank you for reporting this issue. It's a change that was made intentionally during the new captions workflow re-design.
Apologies for the inconvenience. In the meantime, there are a couple of alternatives to get to your desired result.
Option A: Avoid using what we call, "Text-in-a-box," which means creating a text box and then typing into it. Instead, simply use the type tool, click once in the Program Monitor, and then start typing, then you will be using what we call "Text-on-a-point," which will give you the background box you need.
Option B: If you do need to use Text-in-a-Box, then you can create a Shape layer the size of the text box and use the Responsive-Design Position tools to Pin all sides of the background box to the text layer. The shape layer will follow all changes made to the text layer.
Thanks so much,
