I have a text document in which some of the text is a yellow color. I have highlighted it, and via the menu, changed the text color to black, with no highlighting or background color. But the font color hasn't changed.

Thanks for any help!

i tried the above methods but the font color remains the same As I have noticed, when the selection is lost, its gets back to its old colour. Please resolve this issue. OS: win7 LibreOffice: 6.0.7

Try "Clear Direct Formatting" and then checking whether you can change the font color. I can't explain why this may work but it did for me (for a similar issue in Calc)

If you need to change the font color:
Select text > Format > Characters > Font Effects > Font color > choose black

If you need to change the "background color" = highlight color:
Select text > Format > Characters > Background > choose the background = highlight color you need

If this is not the solution, please clarify:
- Is the font yellow or the background? - How exactly did you try to make changes and what are the results of each step.

EDIT
The screenshot you provided has vertical lines at the left side. This indicates that the Record Changes function is switch on. Please see if Edit > Changes > Record is checked. If so uncheck. Most likely also Edit . Changes > show is checked. If so uncheck.

There is also a toolbar for managing changes: View > Toolbars > Changes

Additionally I recommend to have a look at the free guides, which you can download from http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/d...

I tried the above, and it does not work. The font is a yellow color. I have changed it to black, with a white background, nothing is different, it does not work.

Thank you!! Yes, I had Record Changes selected. Unchecking that fixed the problem. I appreciate the help, thanks again.
