Can't color text / can't convert to path

I've got some text in my Inkscape file that I can't change the color of and can't convert to a path (two things I need to do).

Whenever I try to color it, I get: "Path is undefined."

Whenever I try to covert the text to a path, I get "Group of 1 object in layer TheLayerName..." or, if I ungroup that one object from itself (??) I get "No object to convert to path in the selection."

I really need to get these text characters colored and converted to paths.

Thank you in advance for any help!

What type of an object is it then? When you ungroup, what does the Statusbar say?

Welcome to the forum :)

If you could share your SVG file, we can help you figure out what the problem is.

That's alright. I got it fixed. I was selecting incorrectly.
