    Default TextColor in QTextEdit

    What is the most efficient way to reset the color of all the text in a QTextEdit? SetTextColor only sets the color of the current format and does not change existing text. Thanks for any help.

    Hey,

    stylesheets would solve your problem. Create a Stylesheet and set it to your QTextEdit.

    If you don't have any other format in the text: save the text to a QString, clear the edit and set the text with the new color. Otherwise I guess you have to loop through your text formats.

    Thanks. I've tried setting the StyleSheet, but it is overridden by the text formats. Saving and clearing works fine; the only other format was a base font.
