    I suspect you may be thinking of callouts? No way I'm aware of to configure a background color for the text object.

    For fun I fired up version 12 and looked at it. I think the callouts depict what you are remembering.

    Hi Jared,
    For text with a white background, you should use the rectangle callout. (Or other shape if that is what you would like.)

    You can configure the background color, border color, shadow, etc. with that option.
    The text option is for text with a transparent only background.


    Thanks for using Snagit!

    Callout, not text. Callout. Thanks... I need to remember that... Callout. Hopefully I got it. :) Thanks for the help.

  • Also, once you get the callout configured how you like it, you can click the little + icon over in the quick style panel to add it there...and if you use it a ton, click the star icon to add it to the Favorites tool for instant access. More info in this excellent tutorial.
