When using the Text Editor to place or modify text the color that is selectable within the editor does not coincide with the Active Color that has been chosen.
The colour selection used in the Word Processor text editor relates back to what has been defined within the Text style being used. That is, the selected Text Style can define the colour separately for the text being placed. The Active Colour does not control this when the Colour picker option has been ticked in the Text Style.
If this is turned off or un-ticked then you should find that the colour picker is greyed out in the Word Processor and the text colour is being defined by the Active Colour.
