I did not find any way to change the colour in which formulas are displayed
inside a presentation.
This is a bit annoying for screen presentations, where you want to use a dark

This feature is already available, please see

However, it cannot be found in the selection window

OK, I can confirm the hint on said web page works.
Maybe we can add it to the selection window (along with
color selection dialog) or at least improve documentation?

MRU->FT: I don't think that color is used very often too display
formulas. But perhaps we can have a color option in the format menu or
sth. like that. At the moment it is not very intuitive...

Allow to set colour attribute to formulas (not to single characters
but the whole object!)

Currently there is some support for colours (taken from i48526), try:
" 2 + color cyan 100 over color yellow { 5 } "
There are 8 color values predefined:
black, blue, cyan, green, magenta, red, white and yellow.

However, it seems that Issue 5156 will provide 'Colors in formulas' and has
progressed further- so marking this issue as a duplicate. Please add comments
and votes to i5156.
