Attribute Data Type:
Attribute Default Value:
Attribute Inherited from Preferences?
Attribute First Added:
Specifies the default (starting) display colour of $Text in text windows, before any further editing.
This colour may be modified by further text editing — it is the 'default' colour for new text in that note.
IMPORTANT: Changes to this attribute affect only those notes with no current $Text. Once anything has been added to $Text, inheritance is broken. Thereafter $Text uses the relevant attribute settings as at the time the text was added; they are effectively 'baked' into the $Text. The only way to 'reset' text with the wrong $TextColor value is to select the text and apply plain text formatting (Style menu). WARNING: setting plain text resets all $Text styling attributes. Is is not possible to 'reset' only font but not colour, text size, bolding, etc., as might be otherwise intuited.
