My brain seems to have hit an impasse with Railmodeler-Pro.  I have the track plan technique figured out.  It was relatively simple to figure how to select and use the variety of track brands.  I cannot seem to master or even get the basics of placing text on the plan.  

I found the tool for placing text, but the text shows up white.  On a white background it is barely visible.  Other things like placing arrows and shapes is equally as confusing.

I am using a desk top MAC.

I don’t use the program and don’t have a Mac, but I googled “how to change text color in railmodeller pro” and found this forum discussion from 2016, the 4th entry has some point instructions. I don’t know if they’re still current, but maybe they’ll lead you in the right direction.

Thanks dave.  Reading the posts on that forum, it appears that I am not the only confused bas***d.

Very frustrating !   So I made a test layout and inserted the number 313, indicating a bascule bridge.  I was able to figure out how to make the numbers show up in black.  All well and good.  

Next I opened up the layout I've been working on and did the same thing.  But when I go to colorize the text, using the very same method as the test layout, the number 313 is replaced by the word TEXT.

Jim, that doesn't work.  I've tried doing as you instructed.  I've tried deleting the letters TEXT then inserting 313.  Each time I go to make the numbers black by clicking on the "Fill color" under "Document", the numbers revert to the word TEXT.

Sorry Jim, doesn't work for me.

Jim, we have success !!!!!   I was clicking on the fill color icon after I typed the letters and numbers instead of simply clicking on the screen as you just said.  

Thank you for sticking with me.
