While refreshing the look of our own site, we needed a way to change the text color of some words using the new WordPress block editor (Gutenberg). This isn’t available in the block editor yet, but we’ll show you a few ways how to do this. For some of the native blocks like Paragraph and Heading blocks, you can change the text color of the entire block by using the color picker in the inspector. For changing individual words or sentences, you will need plugins to help you out. Stackable for example adds a text color formatting button to the toolbar of all your blocks.
