I use black slides with white font. In the notes editing mode, the slides color is black, and i can not read anything.

How can I change the font color, why is it not the same as in the "normal" slides view?

To narrow down the problem, you should still announce your LibreOffice version and the operating system.

I cannot confirm on:
Version:, Build ID: a64200df03143b798afd1ec74a12ab50359878ed,CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 4.12; UI render: default; VCL: kde5; Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US,Calc: threaded
Thus is might be required to upload an anonymized example of your file (one or two slides with dummy text should be sufficient).

It is version: Version: Build ID: 1:6.0.7-0ubuntu0.18.04.10 CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; Locale: en-GB (en_GB.UTF-8); Calc: group"

I figured out, if the text is white (font color automatic) on the text field at a slide, the text is black in the notes editing view. Tested with standard presentation templates like "Portfolio" and "Lights". If I change the font color from automatic to white, it is correct in the notes editing view. This is only a workaround ...

Maybe only a problem with this version?
