This code doesn't work. It contains lots of errors starting with the 1 in newcommand. Beside this use \textcolor{green}{#1} or \leavevmode\color{green} – Ulrike Fischer Jul 3 '14 at 8:42
strange, the code works for me. Thank you, I think your sugguestion works well. – Ginger Jul 3 '14 at 8:51
Now it will probably work (apart from the fact that I don't have the "default" package. But before the edit it had some error. – Ulrike Fischer Jul 3 '14 at 8:57
