Hello greetings from Venezuela.

Excuse my English, I write using google translator.

I’m using LibreOfiice Version: 5.0.4.2, Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon 64 bits

My probles is that when I try to change the color of a character, black remains the same no matter what color you choose.

It happens in Writer and Calc.

In Calc, when I click in the formula bar to edit a cell, the character changes to the color chosen, but pressing Enter or select another cell, returns to black.

If print, go all in black caracteres

EDIT:
If I save a document as .docx characters are colored in Word2007 (Windows 7), but when I open it again in LibreOffice everything sees black

What could be happening?

Thank you

Luis

file format? / possible bug
Hi Luis. Are you saving to ODT/ODS or DOCX/XLSX? There is an old bug (tdf#84340) for DOCX font colour. Perhaps try saving in DOC as an alternative?

It is not a problem with formats.
It is not a problem with formats.

I saved with both formats when formats use MS-Office, I see it in MS-Office

I’m thinking it’s a bug, I opened the file in LibreOffice under Windows 8 and I can view and print the character with colors… but it remains without color for LibreOffice under Linux

works here
Luis, thanks for the example file. It opens as expected here under Debian x86_64 LXDE/Openbox using v4.3.7.2, v4.4.7.2, and v5.0.4.2 from the website. It may be a problem with the Linux Mint provided variant of LO.

Me too
Just came across this post, and I am experiencing the same problem in Calc. Tried to change colour of Font in a selected Cell and nothing happens on screen. I can change background colour on screen, but not Font colour. Whilst still in formula bar, cell changes colour as expected, but on leaving, cell reverts to Black, i.e. same experience as OP.

The colour prints out ok, just not visible on screen!

i dont use docx
i gave up trying to save librewriter files in microsoft formats such as docx a very long time ago. When I use librewriter I just use odt file format and when I export I use pdf if I wnat to publish to others.

The microsoft file formats are proprietary and its a bit of hit or miss if the libreoffice developers get it right. Its all buggy code. Think about it too, microsoft has an interest in maintaining incompatibililty between the docx files and odt.

If you need docx files, use microsoft office. If you can live without docx, use libreoffice.

Hi Luis,

I suddenly had the same issue under Windows 10 after installing LibreOffice and configuring it.
The behaviour occured because I had set “Use automatic font color for screen display”. You can find it under ‘Options – Accessibility’. After I unchecked the setting, life was colourful again.

Regards,
Torsten
