To alter colours, first click on the wording you wish to change (you'll see a difference in the left margin: here highlight has been chosen), then click on a colour in the colour box (where the cursor is in the screenshot). The radio buttons below the colours determine whether you're changing foreground or background colours. You can press the Reset button if you want to revert to standard defaults.

The same colours, or equivalent shades of grey, will appear in printouts, or you can set the printer to black and white, in which case any column not using "plain text" colour will appear in italics (or bold or underlined if you have already set the column to italics).


Ruler and Plot

This opens another dialogue window, in which you can set colours and plot divisions for the ruler:
