How to make Nero 8 make solid color text?


Can someone tell me how to make Nero 8 Cover Designer allow me to make SOLID color text on a blank template?

When I choose the " Artistic Text Tool " and type letters, they appear either as letters with only a red outline OR they are outlined in red and have a blue center.

I have tried and tried all the settings and properties that I can find and none of them change the font color.

The only way to remedy the problem I have is after I type the letters I have to highlight them and then choose the “Brush Color” and flood the letters with the color I originally wanted! I think this is by far the worst CD jewel case cover creator I have ever seen, there is nothing intuitive about it.

There has got to be a solution to this but what the heck is it?

Thanks to all who reply!
