I am just making a gif button, first layer with the button color is working
(just duplicate my button) but when I want to add the text it writes only
whith the background color. I tried black, red, green, dark blue...and
everything is light blue.
Usually I can add a black text without any problem but not today.
I tried on a second computer and it did the same
I am completely lost as why it does that
