The icon that looks like a paint can will highlight text with a background color. This can be used in Notes (including math boxes) and Lists & Spreadsheet. In the Graphs, Geometry, and Data & Statistics environments, this tool will fill a shape with color.

The icon that looks like the letter A will change the color of selected text in a Notes (including math boxes) or Lists & Spreadsheet environment.

A sneaky way to change the color of text on a Graphs or Geometry page is to place a point on the page. Then, right-click and change the points attributes to Thin and change its color to whatever you want. Now, right-click and label the point; any text you type will match the color of the point!
