Opening object's Line & Fill settings with a menu shortcut (cmd + l) displays a dialog with default(?) object settings and not with the actual object settings.
Any changes made to the line or fill options are also ignored when the dialog has been opened with the menu shortcut.

How to reproduce?

1. Create a text column frame.
2. Make sure that the frame is selected and open the Line & Fill options by pressing cmd + l.
3. Disable filling and click OK.

You will notice that PGS still fills the frame.

If you open the dialog by selecting Line & Fill from the menu, disable filling, and click OK, you will get a transparent frame.

Now, if you open the Line & Fill options with a cmd + l and look at the Filled option, you will see that it's ticked, eventhough filling is disabled.

Janne, I hope I understand what you mean.
cmd + l (cntrl + l on windows) is for text, while only the l is for the text column.

So you need the see the text always (visible), isn't it? That's why it is always filled, no matter if you disabled it. A precaution by PGS.

Ah, okay. No bug then. Pressing a cmd + l is like selecting the menu item "Type->Line & Fill" and pressing an l is like selecting the menu item "Object->Line & Fill".

Both dialog windows have exactly the same title ("Line & Fill") which is a little bit confusing, IMO. I would appreciate new titling so that the windows could be identified by the title.
