I can't seem to change text colours in Impress

There doesn’t seem to be any control in any of the menus or toolbars to change text colour.

Traditional way: Add the appropriate toolbar choosing menu View - Toolbars - Text Formatting.

New way: Press Ctrl+F5 (the same that menu View - Sidebar), click on the Properties button, and unfold Character.

Thanks I think that’s done it. Not used to an office program where the formatting functions aren’t already there on the visible toolbars.
