How do I change the text colors. I have tried everything in preferences but nothing seems to work. I have a blue background and white letters that I wish to change to black for wall width in the box that appears when you go to set the wall width. I have set the menu to default colors and changing any of them does nothing.
sounds like you are refering to a ttf font.
Change/Text/Font and select how you want the "True Type Fill / Outline" colors set.
