Hi marcomeswara,

If the text was created with the Content block, there is a font color dropdown in the toolbar to change colors.

If you are using the default Elemental theme, you can select the color you want using the Design customizations.
Settings > Design > Customize > Site Title

I attached screenshots for where to make the changes.

Your help would be much appreciated

You could use some inline css to change the font color.
Click the 'Source' button and find the tags that wrap your text (probably <p> tags) and change the tag like this <p style="color: #ff0000">

No, in the latest 8.4.4. version there is no color dropdown for the text created in the standard Content block.

What is the reason why the color dropdown is removed, resulting in a complete useless editor?

dashboard > system > rich text editor . activate the text color option toward the top of the list

Thanks! Found it!

In the default settings for the Rich Text Editor, the Color Button is not selected. The Color Dialog is selected however.

Is this a bug? There is no meaning in activating the Color Dialog when the Color Button is not activated.

I have never heard about any editor in the world with no default possibilities to set color other than black...

@Janks, it is actually on purpose. If you notice, everything that would result in inline styling was disabled by default. The reason is Concrete5 is trying to push towards using the existing styling from the theme. If your theme didn't plan for a specific color it probably shouldn't be used and it would be better to not use it inline. Theme styling is easy to change. Inline styling is hard to change. If you change the theme in the future those inline colors will remain untouched and if they don't match anymore you'll have to change them manually one by one.
