Failure to Apply Text Color

Libreoffice 5.3.3.2 on Ubuntu 17.04: When I select and mark some test
then click on the Writer Font Color icon to apply a color the text
remains unchanged. Clicking on the Highlight Color icon will apply
highlighting to the marked text.

Has anyone else seen this?  Am I doing something wrong or maybe have
some setting is set wrong?

Should I open a bug report? I could not find any open bugs for this
phenomena.

You probably have Tools | Options... | LibreOffice | Accessibility |
Options for high contrast appearance | Use automatic font colour for
screen display ticked. Remove the tick. (You may need to reload any
document before its display will change.)

With this option ticked, the text is coloured in the document file
and will print as coloured - but does not display as such. You can
see the true text colour in Page Preview - unless you also have Tools
| Options... | LibreOffice | Accessibility | Options for
high-contrast appearance | Use system colours for page previews ticked.

Probably not.

I trust this helps.

Re: Failure to Apply Text Color


Hey Joe. . .

I just installed 5.3.3.2 on my Ubuntu 16.04 laptop.  I had 5.2.x
installed but I realized that I had forgotten to install the newest
version when I did on a different laptop [17 inch].  That different one
had a fresh install of both Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10 Home.

Here is what I tried.
I pasted some text into Writer.  I selected a large block of text and
then clicked on the font color [red was the last one used].  I had no
problems with it changing the text to red.  I tried changing colors and
no issues there.

Since I do not have 17.04 installed, I could not test it using that OS.

Just for reference - what version of LibreOffice was installed with
Ubuntu 17.04?  I tend to installed the latest version of LO after I
upgrade to a newer OS.  Of course, I tend to forget to upgrade LO after
that.  3 strokes can do that.

Re: Failure to Apply Text Color

With Ubuntu 17.04 and LO 5.3.1.2 (the "standard" for 17.04) I don't see
any problem.

In reply to this post by krackedpress
Brian's advice quoted below worked for me. It was an issue with
accessibility having a check box ticked.

Yes I had 5.3.3.2 installed on Ubuntu 17.04.

Blessings, Joe
