How do I change text colour in text area?


This seems like a really basic question, but I cannot find any information about it. I can change text colour when it is a line of text as it appears as a property, but a text area just gives colour options for the box and border.


Hi Penny, sorry for the confusion. If you need to change the text color in the Text Area (or any control that doesn’t support changing it from the inspector), you can use our text color syntax:

{color:red}This will be red text{color} and this is black.
