# Changing Text cell color

What can I set so that whenever I create a text cell, everything I enter into the text cell, whether plain text or some mathematical notation (Ctrl+9 on the Macintosh) is in a particular color I would like to choose?

• The color of all text can be set by using Option Inspector to specify FontColor. Jul 31 '17 at 22:27
• @bbgodfrey Thanks for this answer, but this sets all the colors ( I selected Blue ) to Blue. Even the input cell color is now blue, which I wanted to remain the usual black color. Jul 31 '17 at 23:11
• Indeed, so. That is what I meant by "color of all text " Perhaps, progress can be made by means of a style sheet. Jul 31 '17 at 23:13
