When we select an object, it appears highlighted with small boxes called grips. These boxes help us, among other things, to edit the objects as will be studied in Chapter 19. It should be mentioned here because once we have selected one or more objects and, therefore, they have “grips”, it is possible to modify their properties, including color. The easiest way to change the color of a selected object is to choose it from the drop-down list in the "Properties" group of the "Start" tab. If, instead, we select a color from that list, before selecting any object, then that will be the default color for new objects.
The "Select color" dialog box also opens on the screen by typing the "COLOR" command in the command line window, the same happens in the English version. Try it.
