[BUG] UMG cant display any color on text

Hi guys

No matter what color i set on Text inside UMG, it is always black, so only options i have for Text color is Black and White. This bug only occures on Ipad 4 retina, and ipad mini 3, but works great on iMac and Windows.

For example test on color: Hex: 431503FF , it will apear black on ipad and ipad mini 3 (doesnt matter if sRGS is on/off in color picker)

iMac 10.10.2, ipad 4 retina iOS 8.1.2, ipad mini 3 iOS 8.1.2.
Unreal Engine 4.7.2

Howdy wmbuRn,

Thank you for reporting this issue. I have been attempting a repro of this issue and need a bit more information to be sure that my repro has been setup correctly. Would you be able to clarify which, if not all, Text you would be using in your UMG that is causing the issue? Also, would you be able to replicate this issue with a blank template project?

Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and have a great day!

Howdy wmbuRn,

Just wanted to check in with you and see if this issue is still occurring. If it is, would you be able to provide the information asked for in the post above?

Thanks and have a great day!

hi, sorry for responding this late. In the begining any color i set on Text was black/white (solution was to exit Project and load it up again) (if he changes are too small and i click launch button it doesnt compile them)


Any color set in UMG is brigther on iMac and windows but much darker in ipad retina 4 and ipad mini 3.

iOS 8.1.2 , UE 4.7.2, iMac 10.10.2

Hello wmbuRn,

I was looking over your issue and I have a few questions for you that will help narrow down what issue it is that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. Can you reproduce this in a clean project?
  2. If so, could you provide a detailed list of steps to reproduce this issue on our end?
  3. Could you provide screen shots of the issue?
  4. Could you provide screen shots of any blueprints that may be involved?
  5. Could you provide screen shots of any materials/textures that you are using?
