What's this crap on my plot legend? And; how to get rid of it?

Forgive the lack of a technical term; but what's the crap (shading/vertical lines) added to the mini-plot previews on the Plot Legend on this XY Graph in LV2012 SP1?

And how do i get rid of it to make it look more like the original (e.g., just a solid color background)?

I would normally specifcally identify these parts by name; yet it appears these parts have no name:

Figured it out: it's from setting the Plot Area:Colors:BG Color property to Transparent. Changing this to a solid color likewise changes the preview to a solid color.

Bonus points: who can describe those design elements that appear when plot area is transparent? This is not a trick question; i don't know the answer, and am curious.

My first thought was transparency, but I tried it and cannot make the background of the legend transparent.

 

Edit. After your second post. I cannot make it transparent from the FP with the coloring tools, although I did not try very long.  I may have missed the magic pixel.

Did you try the shovel tool (only in 2013 beta).  Great for removing crap from both block diagrams and front panels.

Paul,

 

I think that tool is only in the 2023 beta.
