Text color won't change!

I’ve been using Scrivener for some time but when I opened up my project today, it would only type in red. I tried setting the color to black under Text Preferences and also by clicking on the little box that shows text color. It let me choose black but as soon as I click into the text to start typing, it goes back to red. Not sure what to do.

Sounds like you switched on Revision Mode by accident–this makes all your new text a color so that it’s easy to see changes. The insertion point switches to this color too, indicating you’re in revision mode and not just using regularly colored text. To return to your defaults, choose Format>Revision Mode>None. You can also switch all your red text back to normal by choosing Format>Revision Mode> Remove All Revisions.

Thank you! I don’t know how I did that and wouldn’t have known where to look to change it. Thanks again.
