Entering and Editing Text
Click the down arrow next to the Font Color button on the Formatting toolbar to display a palette, or menu of colors. Select a color from the palette to apply it to any text you have selected or to text you are about to type. Select Automatic to return selected text (or text you are about to type) to its default color.
To make the color palette easier to reach, click the down arrow next to the Font Color button. When the palette appears, click the bar at the top and drag the palette away from the toolbar, closer to your work. Then just click the colors to select them as you need them.
To put the palette away, click the X button in its top right corner.
