Text fill always black



For some reason I find that my files suddenly defaults for the text to be black fill. I've gone through every class to make sure no class has a default of a black fill. I've reviewed all the text stiles to ensure none of them have a black fill. when I click the text icon in the Basic tool palette, I have the fill as white. But as soon as my mouse clicks on the design layer to start typing, the fill changes to black, with the class error. I cannot find any location to change this default. As you can imagine this is incredibly frustrating. 


EDIT: As I started playing around, I found that the "unsytled" converts to a white fill, but all the other styled texts, (both custom and default vectorworks styles) all default to black fill. I added a quick video of some of the steps if that helps.


I'm hoping this is a simple fix and just a silly user error.
