I'm not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but trying to set the background color (using office 365 desktop version) just causes onenote to lock up indefinitely requiring a force close.

The background color does not end up getting set.

hi - almost every macro i use from macroland turns any of the white text on my pages (Hex #ffffff) to grey (hex #979797).  This makes it incredibly difficult to find use for most of the best macros :(
I poked through the code on a couple of the macros and can't seem to find anything that would be forcing that change.  My whole team wants to get in on this tool and are heavy onenote users, but this is a showstopper for us.  Any recommendations?

I used to be able to have white background, but with office365 dark mode not only extended to OneNote which it did not before my last reboot, OneNote is black-on-black where excel and outlook have black border navigation but WHITE page background, this seems broken in OneNote and nothing fixes it. I thought your macro would be the fix but I updated it and via macro white can be selected but is disallowed by dark theme which is wrong.  The other apps allow white background in dark theme. If you know how to fix please advise.
