All I want to do is add a free text box with plain unadorned style. No shadows, no outlines, but it it is SO difficult. Why can't we have a 'remove all text formatting' option to strip all the fancy stuff of?
It's also frustrating that you cannot apply a background color other than transparent to your text. It would be great if you could apply a background color so that your text can cover up whatever is beneath it.
Another styling choice I wish they would let us remove is that, when you resize the box containing your text, it re-positions the text inside it, even if you have your padding set to zero. Another situation where plain, unadorned text with no margin, padding or other styles applied, would be extremely welcome.
