Is there a way to change the color of the text on a book cover in Lightroom 5? I can't see it. You can select typeface and size but the color is always black. Surely you can change the color and even do reverse-outs?

I'm considering a text altered in a graphic jpg to work around this.

Select the Text after typing it in as Page Text in the Text panel.

With the text selected, go to the Type panel. Here you can change font, size, color, etc. Click on the color swatch to expand the Color Selection panel to choose a text color.
