  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • In Dashboard visualizations (any visualization type), users have
    the option to 'show title' by opening Edit Mode > Highlight
    Visualization > Visualization Properties >  General > Show
    Title.
    
    Once the visualization has the title exposed, the user can edit
    highlight the text, then from the properties pane, a new section
    'Text Details' is exposed. From here, we can change font, style,
    color, etc.
    
    If a user tries to change the color of the title to a color
    previously added to the favorites list, the change of color will
    not be shown after saving, closing, and reopening the dashboard.
    It will be reverted to the original color. Choosing a color from
    the standard list of available colors will allow the user to
    change the text color without issues.
