Hi all,

I have made quite many books in Classic over the years but so far never with much text. When adding text cells to book pages I cant find a way to save or make a favourite of a text color so I need to type into color code all the time.

Is there a way to put a selected text color into the quick select swatches on the top of the text color panel?

Thanks and Regards,
Tom

If I understand you correctly, you want the image to have a text overlay (automatically). The only way that I can see this happening is to create an image file that has text on it. It is a manual process to add text to an image that does not have text.

You can in Lightroom Print to JPG and add a watermark. This will create a derivative JPEG file that can be imported into Lightroom.
You can also "Edit in Photoshop" and that derivative can have the text added in Photoshop.

If you right-click on the favorite swatch, you can "set this swatch to current color". I'm assuming that's what you mean?
