Hi Tim,

Have you tried to select the cell by itself before trying to change its color? Changing the color of one cell is sometimes a bit tricky. First, position your cursor in the cell and do Table > Select > Cell, followed by Table > Properties > Background. From there you should be able to select the color.
Yes, I have done exactly that and it works most of the time. Regarding this particular cell, which is the sole cell in the table: When the background color is changed, that change is only apparent in a narrow area next to the border.

This phenomena has prompted me to speculate that some sort of highlighting has inadvertently been applied to the text, but if my speculation is correct, I have not been able to change or disable highlighting for that text.


Note that I am using LO 7.2 on Fedora downloaded  from the LO site. I seem to remember some past issues with table formatting in previous versions but I am not sure if it dealt with text or table formatting.

I hope this helps.

I am unable to change the background color of a table cell, once an
initial color is selected.
I suspect that this may be solved by modifying text highlighting.

However I am unable to find any way to turn on or off text highlighting.
No icon appears to be present that would control such a process. I have
looked through all of the drop down menus and so far, have not found the
appropriate control.

Any help would be most welcome.
