Get help using Construct 2

Hi Scirra gurus,

is there a way to manipulate the text object so that i can change the background color or maybe add a border outline

i tried the textbox addon, but that gives a depth to the text that i'd rather not have

thanks

Not with the text object, but you could try the spritefont plugin if you want more control of the text appearance:

@r0j0hound
I think he speaks about textbox and not text object.

You can play with the borders property to disable the '3d' effect.
