The glow behind the font can be changed removed easily by switching to another font from the pull down text menu.
The glow can also be changed removed by clicking on the button next to the text (edit text button), then click on the "change font" button, the next window will have options down on the lower left side, change the setting to "normal text, no effects".
Office products will have a glow behind the text and these can NOT be changed.
