To put an attribute into effect, you must use the Touchpad keys to select it and then press [ENTER]. To exit the Attributes menu without making a change, press [ESC].

If you are using TI-Nspire CX or TI-Nspire Computer Software, then you can do more than just change the shades of grey, you can change the color of the graphed function. Each new function that you add in the Graphs application comes in a new color. By default, the first function is red, the second is green, then blue, magenta, orange, navy, and brown.

To change the color of a graphed function, hover over the function and press [CTRL][MENU]→Color. Click on the color of your choosing.
