background color attribute

Post by feat » 2011-05-21 01:43:02

from the release notes: the background color attribute should only draw in areas actually occupied by characters (eg: exclude indents, line wraps, etc).

ah, but who decided it should behave like that?

this is bad news: I've used this feature as part of the styling for my headings, so they contrast with the rest of the text and look like horizontal separators between sections… this no longer works!

any workaround?

forget about this rant: I've found a way to achieve the same effect using the paragraph-shading feature…
