Override combination for text area of fill not working


I have a fill with the option of show area text checked, so the area of that fill is display. Then I have the renovation filter displaying the new and existing of my project, and the text of the area is override by this filter. I create then a rule to keep the text without an override, so I give a criteria to choose the text only in the layer where the fill is, because I can´t see in which other layer the text could be so I asume that by default is on the same as the fill. What am I doing wrong?

even though, the show area text is a text element, it is part of the fill so you need to put Fill as a criterium in element type, not text.

You might need to pay attention, if it has a negative impact on your fill, while it affects your fill area text the way you want it.
