Opaque Text box

Postby natdame9 » Fri Feb 08, 2019 3:53 am

Hi Everyone --

I need help creating an opaque text box on Finale 25 (Mac). There used to be a "Fill" function in the shape designer window I believe, but it doesn't seem to be there anymore. Thanks for your help!

Since it's there in the Windows version, it might be a Mac only issue. Maybe someone else with a Mac will chime in here.
