How do I get text color to change
I've read the text color part of the manual repeatedly. I've watched online slide tutorials.

I can get the Text tool to show red, I can get a red asterisk (which is the colored text I want in my picture) to show in the text tool box, but NOTHING gets the text to show up red in the document.

Sigh.

I've spent several hours trying everything I can think of.

Help, please?

In addition to ofnuts above post,

check that your image is the correct colorspace "mode"
By going to

Image > Mode > RGB

RE: How do I get text color to change
Oh, but the thing is it worked one time. I think it was because I'd opened a new copy of an image from the original source. But, when I opened the actual image I wanted the asterisk on, it no longer would do red. Both images were the same basic kind of image.

It's working , with help on the Montezuma forum in WP. The problem didn't relate to either of your suggestions.

But, thank you for trying to help.

straight there with a search - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/gimp-question
no comment

edit: A re-read and a bit of dubious/ambiguous advice there.

In the unlikely event that the OP ever returns.
