How to change font and field colors in layout designer

I am using ACT V20 in Windows 365 on a private database. I have designed a custom layout and would like to change the color of the text on some of the labels and also some of the field colors. I do not notice and color options in the preferences window.

Hi lapeter56,

 

It looks like you're editing your layouts on the web - there are slight differences when doing it on the web vs the desktop version.

 

If you want to change the colour of the text - you can do it from the Text Colour Icon in the top toolbar:

To change the background colour, you can click the Background Colour item in the same toolbar:

Hope this helps!
