Subject: [libreoffice-users] Table cell background and text highlighting
version 188.8.131.52 on ubuntu linux
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.

As for renaming (presumably temporarily disabling?) my profile, would
that be to rename the entire path at ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/ ?
thanks so much
