Feature request: text-color in note editor

Hi,
would it be possible to set back the option to make text of different colors in the notes? (Not the text-background, but the text itself)
Thanks.

    ✅ Workarounds for the missing text color feature (Zotero 6):

    a)
    Open a word document (I'm using WPS Writer), write something, change its font color, copy and paste it into your Zotero Note. Now, you can modify it in Zotero's Note, it will keep its font color.

    Or,
    b) From an existing Zotero Note with a colored text, copy the colored text and paste it into your Note. Now, you can modify it, it will keep its font color.

    Tips)
    A carriage return in the middle of the colored text will start a new colored paragraph.
    A carriage return at the end of a paragraph with colored text will start a new black paragraph.
    To have more than one color in a paragraph, copy a text with a different color and paste it into the paragraph. Now, you can modify it, it will keep its font color.

    ✅ Workarounds for the missing text highlights colors (Zotero 6):

    Zotero's Note text highlight color palette has only 5 colors.
    To add more highlight colors, the workarounds are similar to the workarounds for the missing text color feature. After you pasted a highlighted text with a highlight color not in the palette, the new color will be added to the palette.
  • philip123cook raised this a while ago in this thread, and Dan Stillman indicated that it's on the radar. I'm not sure how simple it is to implement in a ProseMirror environment, though.

    I have to admit that I hope it's moving up the priority list, as both block level and inline color is a really big part of how I use notes.
  • I use font colors to indicate what text is copied and pasted versus what is my writing and it makes it much faster to see and process to write lit reviews. Without font colors I've barely used zotero as I find myself needing way longer to orient myself.
  • Yes, for me too it is very important.
    It existed before. Why is this not possible with version 6?
