When I write a text and press "Enter", the cursor goes into the next line. There I want to begin the new text in a new colour. I click on the icon for the text colour (the little "a" icon on the toolbar), and the cursor changes into the colour dropper can. Like the one when you want to fill an object with a certain colour.
This fill in function does nothing when I click the mouse. The text is still black although I had selected another colour.
To exit this dead end, I have to press the "Esc" button. When I do that, the text I type in is of the colour I had picked previously.
I use win 10, on Dell xps15, model 2017.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press "Enter"
2. Click on the icon "a" and select another colour
3. The cursor changes into the "fill" can
4. Type some text - the colour has not changed. It is still default colour (for me that is black).
6. Press "Esc" button, the cursor returns (the "fill" can disappears)
7. Type the text and it will come out in the new colour
No colour change for the new text.
Colour change applied to the new text.

Text colour bug
Attachment shows the "a" text colour tool is selected, and the cursor turned into the "fill" icon. The text, if I type it from here, remains black, not dark red, as selected (that's just my selection for this example). To turn it into the cursor again, I must press "esc" now. When I do that, the text will come out in the new selected colour.
Looks like bug 105293

Yes it is the same issue. I did scroll through the bugs but must have missed it.
