Text Render object always renders white.

So I have this problem where the Text Render object is always rendering white, no matter what I do. I’m trying to make it black. What’s particularly aggravating is I can get it to work on another project file I have, but not this one. No idea why. I copied the Material the engine created automatically as I wasn’t able to save the changes I made to the color and applied it to the object. Renders white. In the editor, as well as Material, it displays black. What gives? Is it a common problem? Am I missing a check box somewhere?

Okay, I got it solved.

I went back to the original engine-produced material and then changed the display color in the details.

It seems that custom materials do not play well with this object.
