Hi,
I used such type of text on master pages a long time ago and as far as I can remember, I inserted a text box, then the text inside. If you don't find the grey colour you need in the Character Designer > Color options, you can create your own grey colour using the View > Color > Definitions menu. Then the created colour will appear in the list of colours in your Character Designer.
Hope this helps.

Folks,

I'm trying to place the word "Draft" in light grey and rotated 45 degrees on my
FrameMaker version 8.0 master pages.

I tried both using text inside a text box and rotated and also tried creating
rotated text from the graphics toolbox.

But can't find where to modify "black" to any shade of grey; did find a tip to
set it as yellow for output as grey on black-and-white printers, but we now have
ONLY a color printer.

I did this once before but it was many years ago and have lost track of how. Any
ideas?
