Edward, so you clicked on this box (red arrow pointing to it in the snip) and changed the font color default in there? And that did not work?

Forgive me, but then you selected "All documents based on the Normal Template?" and that does not fix your problem?

Apparently not. When I click on the font color button in the ribbon, the little box next to (automatic) is still gray.
Also, I just tried opening another word document and I'm still getting the text in gray.

I'm sorry my Friend, but I am stumped. Have you changed the font and size too? I set my font and size different from the original default (I like Verdana 12 better. ). Hopefully another with more knowledge than I possess will stop in and help you.
