Hope someone can help. My question text is black when open in Lectora, but when I view in preview or LMS, it changes to white. Has anyone experienced this problem before? How can I fix it?September 4, 2016 at 6:42 am #325934
What version of Lectora? Which question? Post a sample, perhaps?September 4, 2016 at 7:03 am #325935
See if it works if you change the color from black to almost black.September 5, 2016 at 1:20 am #325971
The version I’m on is Lectora 12 (all update packs installed). Please see attached. I will try changing the colour to almost black later today and see if it works. I don’t have my PC here. Working on my Mac today.

When you insert a question Lectora will apply the “Default text style” of your title. This seems to be white in your case (that’s why the question textfields on your page are white and additional textfields are black). I’ve tested with Lectora 16. Changing the color to “black” doesn’t change the color at all, the text stays white (which seems to be a bug). If I change the color to dark grey it works correctly.
Another way to correct your issue would be to modify the “Default text style” either for the whole title or for that single page only.
For title default: Double-click the title icon in the title explorer and modify the format in “Default Text Styles” group.
For page default: Double-click the page icon, uncheck “Inherit” and modify the format in the “Page Text Styles” group.

I’m pretty sure I’ve checked this already as this was the first thing I thought it was, but let me just double check. There might be something I’ve missed, could be the style sheet. I will post feedback.
I wasn’t the original designer on this job. Just making the changes, so don’t know how this was set up from the beginning. It can get very frustrating at times. Everything I do from scratch works 99% of the time.September 7, 2016 at 6:52 am #326181
Okay, so I’ve checked the things you told me to. My default colours and style sheets are all fine. The colour only changes when I make it any colour but black. I even tried to make a new black. If it looks black, even if not 100% black, it turns to white in preview. It is really bizarre. What else could it possibly be?September 7, 2016 at 8:01 am #326216
Are you able to share your files?September 7, 2016 at 10:30 am #326250
I’ve had this happen to me. Even though I selected the black swatch from the text color dropdown it assigns color:#ffffff; (White) to the object (dev console).
If I changed the color to anything else, preview and then change it back to black it stays black. I have no idea…. weird bug.
Adriana, what is the elements ID that is changing color? My is text1604Font0. just wondering.September 7, 2016 at 2:32 pm #326267
