The colour (color) of text can only be changed afterwards. By selecting text and setting the colour.

What is not possible is to set a colour, and then type in that colour.
It is possible in MS-Office, and I think it is a natural way to type coloured text.

It is very frustrating that this is not possible in OpenOffice. It should work similar as typing bold, italic, or large text.

best regards,

Erwin Waterlander

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
