One day I was driven nuts because Scrivener, my favorite long format writing application, was typing red text. I tried everything. I went to text color and chose black but it simply would not take. I went on the Internet, conducted a search and there were no answers. I just kept poking around until I found the solution. I must have left off with my writing project with first revision which turns all the text to red. I only had to choose the menu item “Format > Revision Mode and then mouse down to “None” to get my text color to become black again.
