Is it possible to set the background of a text box in Google presentation to be semi-transparent? All I see are options to either transparent (a.k.a. "no fill") or completely opaque text boxes.
To add on to Deepak's answer:
If after following Deepak's instructions, the text area rectangle has a transparent background, but the area immediately behind the text characters themselves still has a solid white (or other solid color) background, then:
- Select the text box.
- From the Format menu, select Text Color.
- Select "Highlight".
- Click "Transparent".
