Hi all!
i have just switched to OS 10.6 from OS 10.5(.8). In Leopard i could change the color of the highlight feature in Preview by pressing Cmd+Shift+C, but i cannot find a way to use different colors in Annotations-Preview in Snow Leopard? Anybody knows how to do that? Appreciate.
Thanks a lot for the help,
QUOTE Thanks

Does the setting in System Preferences > Appearance > Highlight color do the trick? I am too lazy to try it

When you click the annotate icon another tool bar appears on the bottom of the window. Select the arrow, square etc and an icon with an arrow dropdown further along the bar will turn default red. Click that icon and the colour list will appear to change it.
