In Unity 5 on Windows 10, I try to change the text color from the Inspector and in scripts, but the color won't change. Here are some screenshots of my Text objects open in the inspector, with there colors set to red and white, but staying the default black in the Scene and Game windows:
Here are the lines of code I am using to change the color
var textColor = beatBestTime ? "#FF0" : "FFF"; scoreText.text = "Time " + FormatTime (timeElapsed) + "\n<color="+textColor+">Best " + FormatTime (bestTime)+"</color>";
which I can verify are being run, but the color remains the same!
