To layer text over a picture or other item:

1.
Choose the Item or Content tool.

2.
Click on the text box that is to be in front. If it's not yet in front, choose Item menu > Bring to Front (F5) .

3.
Choose View menu > Show Colors (F12).

4.
Click the Background color icon on the Colors palette .

5.
Click None . Do not select Black with a shade of 0%—you won't achieve transparency.

Tip

Make sure the bottommost item isn't so dark that the text becomes unreadable, or make the text white.
