Button Text

I'm creating a "template" button for use on a web site and I'm having trouble with text color.

I create the button as follows: File, New, (some size), RGB, Transparent. Select foreground and background colors Select and create outside rectangle, fill with gradient. Select and create inside rectangle, fill with gradient (in opposite direction.)

Now if I select black foreground, text, select font; I can add a label that is black.

However. If I quit Gimp, then want to create another label, I can not for the life of me get the text to be black using the retrieved template. It assumes the foreground color of the template no matter what I do.

How can I open the saved template and make the text color what I want.

My work around to date is to not exit Gimp. I create the first label, save the result as button1.gif, back out using "undo", create the next label, etc. until I have the desired number of buttons. I'm SOL if I later want to create an additional button.
