adding titles

When adding a title to a slide in fotomagico 5, I can make the background transparent, but cannot make the box directly behind the type transparent. It remains white regardless of what I do. I’ve closed fotomagico and trashed all the boinx preferences, but box still stays white. Thanks!

Are you using the latest release of FM? You should be able to select a text block, then in the right sidebar under “Title” go to the line that reads “Background:” and choose the background color from the little box AND the transparency value by sliding the marker from left (0% – fully transparent) to the right (100% – fully opaque). It should work.
