That options are for the text itself - that is not the background.

Also, please uncheck fill/erase background in the text palette.
Thanks Thorsten, I'll keep an eye out for updates....

Please download the latest BETA 4480:
http://www.lemkesoft.org/beta.html

That should fix the issue.

Also, it hides now the unused items in the palette. Because the state active or inactive of color wells can distinguished very difficulty.

GC 11.2.2 (4481):
Much better, but I'm still confused on selecting colors for the text and background, I seem to have to click the 'text color' box and then the color from the color picker back and forth several times for it to stick. Same for the background color. Is this still an issue or am I not understanding how to do it correctly?

Many Thanks,
David

The background is normally transparent. The color field appears only if you enable the erase background checkbox.

Just click first into the background color field to activate it. Now you can change it with the color picker.

Yes - thanks very much. That is spot on. This sort of support is why we keep using/upgrading GC, since the 90's.....

Also Thorsten, thanks for the tip to the work-around by closing the toolbox in the meantime. Apparently you had a hunch about what was going on.
