Hi - Is there a way to change the background color of the "Edit Text" box from white to another color?

I ask because I need to insert white and yellow text. During the input and editing of the text, I have a very hard time seeing what is in the box.

At the moment, I turn the text black, edit it and then turn it white and close the edit box. However, this is very tiring and if I need to change something... you get the picture....

Hello B. Vote,

Have you tried using a callout instead of the text tool? Callouts can have various shapes and any color background. Check the help for "callout".

I wish I had handy access to Snagit 8; I would make you a video. Let me know if you have trouble with the callout and I'll install version 8.
