The bright issue I think was fixed by episode, so you do not have to create the overlays anymore, you need to write it with the background and use the ‘with’ command. Because now if you create it, that makes it bright (i know crazy right!) Please feel free to message me if this isn’t clear.
The create command doesn’t cause the brightness. If Episode really did fix this issue, then they can use either “with” or “create”. But if they’re currently still having the brightness issue, then using the create command would help them out.
I’m doing it exactly the way you described yet I’m having the bright issue on the web portal. Although when I test it in the app it’s not happening. (P. S your guides help me so much thank you for what you do ilysm!)
Then it’s probably just a web previewer issue. As long as it works in the app then it’s fine, because the app version is how your readers will view your story.
Your so helpful definitely using.
