Text Color Font Greyed out

Previous topic - Next topic


Hello all,

I've seen a similar issue raised once or twice, but I can't find the solution to this problem. I am running Windows 10 and have both scribus 1.5.8 and 1.4.8 installed, but the problem is the same with both versions.

I cannot change the color of my text font, as the icon is greyed out, both in the text properties and in story editor. Can anybody provide me with some assistance please? Thank you


I don't think changing the outline of text is possible in scribus
did you try the bucket fill? the first one should color the text the other the text background


I'm not trying to change the outline, I'm trying to change the colour of the text. As is, words printed in red for example.


Please ignore my previous comment, it seems that 1.5.8 is now working whereas 1.4.8 was not. Thanks
