I am using LO5.04 win64, on windows 7. In both Writer and Calc, I see background colours but not text colours. On screen I see black text against light background; complementary colours on dark bacground. When printing PDF (or print preview) I see the assigned colours.

Can you add a document that has this problem to the question? If your karma is too low, can you add a link to the document hosted elsewhere?

Are you yet another sufferer from the OpenGL bug? These answers to Q64314 will allow you to know yes or no, and fix it if so.

Possibly also an issue with use of high contrast themes as indicated in this question. Related (unresolved) thread here.

Thank you Alex, yes I found the OpenGL problem and disabled it; no further problems.
