The color of the drawing mode used to be purple. But it suddenly changed to yellow. The purpose was quite visible when I highlight things to show people while teaching, but the yellow is very hard to see on a computer projector.

Is there any way to change the drawing mode color? If not, I would love to see the purple brought back.

Hi Harry

There are four pen colours - you can cycle through them using your mouse wheel (assuming you have one)

Thanks. This is helpful. I could find nothing documented in the Help about how to use this feature.

I was using my pointing stick on my Thinkpad laptop at the time, so I am not sure how the color got changed. If it has something corresponding to the center mouse wheel, I don't know what it is.

Don't know which Thinkpad you have but the center pad-button in combination with the 'stick' will do what you experienced on my Thinkpad. But you really have to accidentally do it.

I'm on the Mac... but I don't believe it makes a difference about this.  
I have 6 colors to use for drawing: Green, Yellow, Purple, Red, Orange, & Blue.

I think I hit it accidentally while I was teaching, because it started at green and suddenly changed to yellow, which was not visible on the computer projector. THanks for the tip.
