    I was messing around with the different basic colors from a chart I found on wikipedia and I noticed that only some of them actually work in Open Study. So I thought I'd make a chart of the colors that seem to be working, at least for me. \[\large \begin{matrix}\color{aquamarine}{aquamarine} & \color{blue}{blue} & \color{black}{black} \\ \color{brown}{brown} & \color{cadetblue}{cadetblue} & \color{cornflowerblue}{cornflowerblue} \\ \color{darkorchid}{darkorchid} & \color{forestgreen}{forestgreen} & \color{fuchsia}{fuchsia} \\ \color{gray}{gray} & \color{green}{green} & \color{greenyellow}{greenyellow} \\ \color{limegreen}{limegreen} & \color{magenta}{magenta} & \color{maroon}{maroon} \\ \color{orange}{orange} & \color{orangered}{orangered} & \color{orchid}{orchid} \\ \color{purple}{purple} & \color{red}{red} & \color{royalblue}{royalblue} \\ \color{seagreen}{seagreen} & \color{skyblue}{skyblue} & \color{springgreen}{springgreen} \\ \color{thistle}{thistle} & \color{turquoise}{turquoise} & \color{violet}{violet} \\ \ \color{blueviolet}{blueviolet} & \color{cyan}{cyan} & \color{goldenrod}{goldenrod} \\ \ \color{lavender}{lavender} & \color{midnightblue}{midnightblue} & \color{plum}{plum} \\ \ \color{\tan}{\tan} & \color{violetred}{violetred} & \color{white}{white} \\ \color{yellow}{yellow} & \color{yellowgreen}{yellowgreen} & \color{salmon}{salmon} & \end{matrix}\] If there is already a thread on this, then I apologize. I didn't feel like digging through all of the closed threads though. :) lol

    Example how to use color in the Equation tool: \color{blue}{x^2+y^2=4} The way it will look formatted: \[\color{blue}{x^2+y^2=4}\] If you forget to put the \ in front of color, that's fine. The equation tool allows for that.

    I've gotten kind of used to avoiding using the buttons (except for matrices). So if you're familiar with typing the fraction notation, it's very similar. Hah :D yah i guess XD

    @zepdrix: You can also use hex colors!\[\color{#ff0000}{\text{\color{#ff0000}{}}}\]\[\color{#96cdcd}{\text{\color{#96cdcd}{}}}\]So, you can use ALL the colors possible on OpenStudy.

    \[\textbf{TIPS}\]Use the darker shades. \(\color{#C00}{\text{#C00}}\) is much more comfortable than \(\color{red}{\rm red}\). Avoid using colors when you can -- `\textbf`, `\textit` and `\underline` are warmly welcome =)
