Changing the color of items

You can change the color of individual notes and items; for example, to distinguish specific items when creating educational worksheets. You can do this for the current layout and frame chain only, or for all layouts and frame chains.


  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.

  • You have chosen the appropriate property scope for local properties.


  1. Select the items whose color you want to change. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Color in the Common group.
  3. Click the color preview to open the Select Color (Windows)/Colors (macOS) dialog.
  4. Select or create the color you want.
  5. Click OK to save your changes and close the dialog.


The color of the selected items is changed. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.
