I have a weird black background from a text I copied and paste. Do you know how I can remove it?

I already tried something in Page setup ...

I find an even better way: Format> Paragraph > margin and shadows and then white:

  1. Select your text

3. enter image description here

  1. And select the color you want

The easier way is to repeat the copy/paste but instead of using default paste, use paste only plain text. The keyboard shortcut that works on US-EN, LA-SP keyboard layouts for PCs and maybe others is Ctrl+Shift+v. If the keybord shortcut doesn't work for you try using the Google Documents toolbar Edit menu or the contextual menu (right-click on the place that you want to add the text).

  • @RevolucionforMonica You are welcome. I suggest you to post that as an answer. Apr 26, 2021 at 15:57
  • In the 2023 Version of Google Docs: Format > Paragraph styles > Borders and shading --> set background to white. Alternatively, if you want just the text, CTRL + SHIFT + V (on windows) or CMD + SHIFT + V (mac)
