I have two text objects in my Illustrator file that look the same, but their Appearance properties are showing up differently and I don't know why.
Here they are, with their Appearance properties:
Text 1 is shown to have a black fill, and this makes sense because if I remove it I am left with just the thick white outline. Nothing mysterious here.
Text 2 is shown to have no fill, yet you can clearly see from the screenshot that it is black just the same. It shows "Graphic Style 7", which leads me to believe this lack of a fill may have been inherited from a Graphic Style, but there are currently no Appearance properties showing that indicate what was inherited. And regardless of where the Appearance properties came from, there is still no explanation for why a black fill is showing where no fill is supposed to be.
Have I overlooked something? I would love an explanation for this discrepancy. Thanks.
