I just figured out how you got there. Since you are just editing the text, I belive that background will always show up. Before you edit the text, you have to have added the text to a location.

 

Make sure you have an image, color panel or video to add the text to. To add a color panel, select where you want it in the storyboard view and right click. One of the commands is to insert a color panel, choose the color and then add the text effect to that panel. If you want the text only on that panel, go to he internal track (icon to the far left above storyline). The internal tracks will display. Add the text there.

See image.

 

 

Attached is a snapshot when I open Text Editor in Videowave:

1) Is this the way it should look? Gray checkers (square boards)?

2) Is there a way to change the default background?

 

Thanks.

The grey checkerboard is universal in most image editors to show a transparent background. In this case, it is showing where the video would be. If you are trying to create text with color behind it, then select the tool to the right. Some of these tools may or may not be available according to which version you purchased.

Sorry for the earlier post. I may have misread your intentions. You taught me something new today. I did know that you could even do that. See the screen shot below to see how to change the background of a text box. First you have to create the frame then you can add an image as the background to the frame. I think the image is self explanatory.
