In Writer, I have a a jpg-picture and I have a text which should appear in the foreground of the picture.

In the draft I wrote the text which should appear in the foreground of the picture into a frame. When I moved the frame above the jpg-picture I always see the background of the Writer document as it is behind the picture. This background is a graphical element saying DRAFT. I was not able to adjust the properties of the frame in the way that the text appears in the foreground of the jpg-picture.

I selected background "color" and "no fill". A choice of no background color "none" is not possible

What do I need to do or is it not possible to use a frame in such a situation?

Currently I using a text field as a workaround.

LibO 4.0.4

You are going to have to use the Drawing toolbar > Text icon [T] type of text frame to achieve background transparency. The type of text frame created by Insert > Frame... appears to set its background according to the anchor point. Refer fdo#34585 and fdo#62505 for details.

You can make an ordinary Text Frame transparent as follows (in LO 4.1.3.2):

  1. Select the frame (e.g. with Control-click near an edge or corner of the frame)
  2. Rightclick->Frame...

In the Frame properties dialog, click the Background tab. Set the Background color to White (or some other color). Then set the "Transparency" selector to the % you want, e.g. 100% to make frame completely transparent.

Note that the Background color must be set to something (not "No Fill") for transparency to be enabled.
