Can´t change color of Chord Notation

• Dec 22, 2021 - 22:10

I am working with a dark mode Musescore 3.6.2 on Endeavour OS (Arch Based) Linux.
I have all apps on dark/night mode, as it is easier for my eyes.
My actual page color in Musescore is dark grey and the staff and notes is dark almost white.
Chord notation (entered with CTRL+K) is there but won´t show nor allow me to change color. I can, for example, add a frame within Inspector (in the image there is a circle frame for each chord, you can see it but not the chord), but can´t change color so I am not capable of seeing the chord notation. When I print, everything is printed OK (in black, of course, in my white printer page), but the chord notation is not printed at all.
I attach screenshot.


You can definitely change color for chord symbols just as you can for pretty much any element, using the Inspector.

If you continue to have trouble, please attach the score rather than just a picture of it, then we can understand and assist better.

I tried changing color through both Inspector and Format>Style.
The UI lets me click the already selected color, which looks just like the background of the window, (so it looks like if nothing was there), and then it opens the window for choosing a color. No matter what color I choose, When I click OK to close the window, the color remains the same. Exactly the same phenomenon happens when I try to change color through the Inspector.
So, I deleted some measures of my mscz file and saved it under a new name in order to send it to you guys, and found a workaround. If I click on " Pick Screen Color", then the problem goes away and I can choose a color again. Please have a look at the file and tell me what you think
So this surely looks like a bug to me
