I'm pretty new at Illustrator but I changed the color of the artboard (using File > Document Settings) to a teal color and wanted some white text ontop of it.
When I add black text, no problem:
But when I change that text to white, it completely disappears! Here are the options I'm using to make it white:
The text is definitely on its own layer, above the background layer, so no problems there. I feel like it might be an opacity problem, because if I change the text to bright red for example, it appears to mix with the teal to make a dark brown color rather than appearing the color it's supposed to:
Apologies if this is a real rookie question, I would love to just get white text and white fill for my closed paths to appear on the teal!
Thank you so much :)
