#7232 new defect

Cannot change font color for profile or away message text

Reported by: Cyber Dog Owned by: seanegan
Milestone: Component: pidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.5.2 Keywords:

Description (last modified by Cyber Dog)

I add an AIM account to Pidgin and go to Accounts>[Aim Account]>Set user info. Paste in some text. Now try to change the foreground color. I highlight the text, click on Font>Foreground Color and select a color. When I hit OK, I find my text is now unselected and unchanged. Nothing I do will get the new foreground color to apply to existing text, making altering pasted text apparently impossible.

Edit: this also affects status messages.

  • Description modified (diff)
  • Summary changed from Cannot change font color for aim profile text to Cannot change font color for profile or away message text
  • Version changed from 2.5.1 to 2.5.2

Updating this as it's still broken in 2.5.2, and adding the fact that it also affects status messages. Fortunately, I've made another observation that may make this easier to fix. The selected text in the Status or User info boxes is de-selected when and only when the user clicks in one of the text fields of the Select Text Color box. If I drag the big arrow around to select the color, it will apply successfully. If I try to edit the colors by hand instead (which I usually do), the text is de-selected and the foreground color does not apply.

Sean, as I recall you were the last person to work with the behavior of gtkimhtml and its toolbar items.
