I've installed the 0.97.2 in Windows XP sp3. When I add text to my diagram the text appears in a bright pink color regardless of the color I've selected in properties. If I choose to show background color and set a fill color that works, but the text itself remains pink no matter what I choose.

    Strange. I've just retested on XP SP3 without any problems. Have you tried the new 0.97.2-1 installer? http://sourceforge.net/projects/dia-installer/files/dia-win32-installer/0.97.2/dia-setup-0.97.2-1.exe/download

    Did you install in the default location? How many colors does your screen show?

    One more thing you could try:
    Stop Dia
    Locate your .dia folder (notice the "." in front) and temporarily rename it. Typically it's Documents and Settings/username/.dia
    * Start Dia

    I'm not sure what happened. I ended up opening a diagram created in debian and the txt objects work fine. Now when I create new diagrams even in windows I don't have this problem.

    Sorry for any confusion!
