When I create a custom shape, what do I need to do to enable fill colours to work?
I tried PNG format with transparency; I can see the image background shining thru, but fill colours don't want to work.

Just a check, are you talking about custom topic shapes or custom background objects in a map? Would you be able to share a screenshot of your map?

Even with MindManager's own custom topic shapes from the Library - Shapes folder you can't change the fill or line colours. It seems that custom topic shapes are treated like images and attributes like colour can't be edited within MM.
