    My pages doesn't show correct color font and I cannot use most of the colors. The only time I can see it is if i set it to certain colors or I highlight it.

    When I highlight it it turns light blue which is quite weird since I have it set to hot pink.

    Anyways I have included a picture to help me explain my situation.

    I think I accidentally toggled with one of the preferences. I'm looking for any help to turn it back to normal. [​IMG]

    Select all of your text, change its color to black, and then start over.

    I tried that and had no success. :(
    It occurs when I quit Pages and open it again.
    It just happens. I cant see the black font when I first start typing.

    I tried to open a Pages file sent from my Macbook, and it didn't show! I highlighted it and it was there.

    I am getting a feeling you are using iWork '08 with Snow Leopard? You must run updates to your Pages, Keynote, and Numbers applications to correct this issue.

    Wow, you are completely right.

    I was using iWork '08 with 10.6.6. I ran the updates and it works perfectly. Thank you so much.
