How to change the background colour of imported text?

When I download a piece of text from the internet and import it into a Scrivener project, its background colour automatically comes with it.

What is the easiest way to change this background colour into the default background colour of the editor?

And is there a way to adjust the colour of imported text and its background automatically to the default colour of text and background in the editor? Or does this always have to be done manually?

Do you mean you copied it into the editor as text, or imported it as a web page? If the former, you can use the highlight options to clear the colour, because background colour in the text is the same as highlights. If the latter, and it’s an imported web page, the only way to do it is to use Documents > Convert > Web Page to Text.

All the best,

It was the former; thanks a lot for the quick answer, Keith!
