Font colors

Previous topic - Next topic


Running Win 7 and Scribus 1.5.8
I set text colour in Preferences, and Document setup, but in a new document, when a textbox has been made, text is invisible. So checking Content properties, and text color is set as 'none'.
Why? Also, the colour-set in Preferences doesn't match the colour-set in shown in Edit/ColoursandFills.  This feature doesn't seem to work either.
I read that a patch has been made that makes it possible to see the colurs in Preferences, but how to import that patch into Windows?
Lastly, it has happened on several occasions that choosing a colour via Content Properties, when the colours are shown, instaed of the smallish box, the box goes right across the screen - odd.
Any comments appreciated.
