Paint: 'Type' colour not active immediately

Description

The 'Type' tools (adding text to drawings) onlys show text as black regardless of the selected colour. The true colour is only activated when the typed line is deselected with a mouse click.

Not intuative, and frustrating for a 5 yesr old....

Also means that there is no way to see what is being typed on a black background.

Should be coloured immediately that colour is selected.

Sorry I put wrong activity name, it should be 'Paint'.

First, thanks for your report. Same as #40, please file at dev.laptop.org.

I leave it open for Eben if he gets any design information out of this.

Direct manipulation and live previews are always the clearest paradigm to work in, so I do agree. Of course, as mentioned, this is activity specific and should be filed as such.
