When I insert a text box into a document in LibreOffice Write, I am unable to edit the text because the line I am trying to edit is highlighted black, with black text. This only happens when I am typing; if i move my cursor away or deselect the text box, the highlighting goes back to transparent like before. please see screenshot Problem with inserting text
