Lines, Polylines, and edges of Rectangles, Ellipses and Polygons


Interior of Rectangles, Ellipses and Polygons


Text and monochrome bitmap fills


Opaque text, dashed lines, hatch fills

So, for example, to change the line color of some selected objects first make sure the Line Color Mode button is depressed, then press a Color Palette button to apply a new line color.
