Dear community, 

I encountered a problem with 2D labels turning white disregards what colour presets I give. 

The script reads title presets from a file (2dlabel path) and then display the title with these commnads:

 2dlabels change * bgColor 1,1,1,0.75;

2dlabels change title visibility show


The 'title' label should appear as opaque black font as defined in the label file:

Label title
(x,y): (0.18,0.5)
text: u'Title'
shown: False
font size(s): 40
font style(s): bold
font typeface(s): sans serif
color(s): (0, 0, 0, 1)

But it appears in white. Bizarrely all other presets in the label file translate into the title appearance as they should except for the colour.  

I run Chimera 1.11.12 (build 41280) on Unix. 

Script and label file are attached. 

Thank you.
