Changing default colour does not affect text
MuseScore has a hidden option to change the default colour of score elements. The option is not available in the Preferences, but is available by editing the INI configuration file (PLIST file on Mac).
The INI option is:
Changing the hex value affects the colour of lines and musical symbols in the score, but text is not affected.
The reason is as follows:
- If no custom colour has been set for a particular score element, non-text score elements use the default colour
- However, text element default to using the colour of the relevant Text Style
- Black is hardcoded in the constructor of TextStyle and TextStyleData
