Text field transparent background only active with preinputted text

When I set a text field to have a transparent background, it still appears to be solid white until text is inputted. Is this just me? Is there a work-around aside from populating it with a space?

I have just tried this and my text field has a transparent background with or without data. How did you set the transparency?

I have exactely the same issue, i have created a text field, set the fill to nothing, and still i see a solid BG on preview.

I can’t reproduce your problem. How did you set the transparent background?
However you could set opacity to zero or hide the field if the text is blank?
