Summary0015973: Scribus 1.5.5 Editing window appears blank
DescriptionThe editing window still does not work the letter appears to be black but no text is visible in the window nor can the color of the text be changed. You can change the background color and then you can read the text. In the left column of the editing window you can not see anything, although clicking at the level of any paragraph you can see the style in which it is written and apply another style of those defined by the user. I would like to send a screenshot.
TagsNo tags attached.

The problem of seeing the editing window blank was due to the dark mode in which you can work with Mac OS 10.14 Mojave. There are several solutions for this problem.
First.– From System Preferences > General go to clear mode when working with Scribus 1.5.5
Second.– Open in Applications > Utilities > Terminal and write in the Terminal window "defaults write -g NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool Yes" without the quotes. Only the menu bar, the dock and certain parts of the system will appear in the dark mode, but not the applications, including Scribus 1.5.5 and the contents of the editing window will be displayed correctly. To eliminate this way of working, simply write to the Terminal window "defaults write -g NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool No".
Third.– There is a small free application called NightOwl very useful to make all these changes with one click.
