LibreOffice Impress refuses to change the text color from grey [closed]

I have a presentation I start on another operating system with libreoffice. I moved the presentation to Debian and tried to change the text color from grey to orange. I use the toolbar tool that has a tool tip that says "Font Color" when you hover over it.

Yet each time I change the text to a given color, any color, it refuses and keeps my text grey.

How can I change the text color?

What I'm trying to say is that the Text toolbar button "Font Color" fails to actually work. The text color does not change when the steps from qubit are followed.

(testing on Ubuntu 12.04.1 with LO 3.5.4.2)

To change the color of text:

  • Open LO Impress
  • Click "Next", "Next", etc... then "Create" to get past the powerful Wizard in your path.
  • You should be on a blank slide. In the right-hand pane, under "Layouts", choose the template named "Title Slide"
    • If you hover over the template, the words "Title Slide" will appear as a tooltip
  • Click where it says "Click to add title", and add a fun title. I chose "My Awesome Slide"
  • Use Ctrl-a or your mouse/trackpad to highlight the title text
  • Open the Text toolbar by selecting from the menu: View -> Toolbars -> Text
  • Click the "Font Color" button on the Text toolbar and select a color for your text.
  • Tip: You can change the color of just a word or two in the text by selecting just those characters/words you wish to change
