Changing the inital Text Color?

Hi everybody!

I got the following problem: Whenever I create a new site or want to edit an old one, the initial text color is not 

black, but a dark blue. Is there a way to change this default color style somehow to black?? 

Thanks for your help!

Kind Regards!

Hi Carsten,

You can edit the default colour scheme for Confluence by going to Confluence Administration, and then in the left panel, under Look and Feel, select Colour Scheme.

This allows you to configure all the default colours on Confluence, including layout and text.

You also refer to this guide for more information:

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Hi Luiz,

I can change the colour of a lot of items on the top bar and buttons, but which option is for the standard text colour on a page content? I do not see it there.

We also have that dark blue as the initial text colour.





Tanks for your reply!

One question, which one of those is it? Cause from the description it looks like they all just chance the look and feel of the whole space, not the initial color of the editor when I edit pages.


Iadded a picture that shows what i mean. That part is set to a dark blue by default. But it should be black. I dont know if any of the color scheme options influence that.


Thank you!


Kind Regards
