How can i adjust colour of Editable Copy of font?

I create an Editable copy of font by selecting Gear icon > Create Editable Copy in Import Settings.

Before 5.1 i was able to change my font’s color via Text Inspector. But I am no longer able to do so. Please Help.

I was able to fix this by setting the material of the UI text:

In the inspector for the UI Text, under the font color, there is a field for “Material.”
In your fonts folder, a material was created when you made your font’s editable copy - It’s the one with the blue circle next to it. Drag this material up to the “Material” property of your text field. It should now let you change the color.
