After changing letters to bold the color changes automaticly into black - if this change is redone the old color comes back ... sorry my English is rather bad ...

@Gerhard - 

No need to apologize about the language barriers - we are an international community and understand that people have all kinds of backgrounds :) I'm sure your English is better than my . .  ability to speak your native language.

That being said - we'll need a bit more information so I'm going to place this into NEEDINFO. Once you answer the questions, please set to UNCONFIRMED. Thanks!

1) Your OS version;
2) Your version of LibreOffice;
3) Is this a new problem? Have you used previous versions of LibreOffice that work?
4) Does this happen with any file or only a specific file?

5) Can you provide attachments that show: 
- original color
- color bolded

Thanks for your understanding and help figuring out what's going on here!

For what it's worth, I just did the following:
1. New writer document;
2. Wrote a random sentence;
3. Changed to bright green;
4. Bolded

Observed: The bold font appears in bright green.
