Default Developer text box shows opaque instead of transparent background

Hi! We have some slides in which the viewer needs to fill out several text boxes in Slide Show View. We inserted the text boxes with the Developer Tab, all works fine.



However, although the Properties for BackStyle are set to fmBackStyleTransparent, the background of the boxes shows opaque in Slide Show View and covers the slide background.

The slide background is not in 1 colour, so changing the back colour of the text box doesn't help.

Does anyone know how to solve this?
Thanks!
Judith.

It cannot be solved. ActivX textboxes were really designed for use on UserForms. Inserted directly onto a slide some features do not work - this include transparency in slide show mode
