The Fonts/Colors options specify the default Font and Color used when drawing Annotation.

Click Tools > Options > Fonts/Colors.

Highlight the item to modify (Text, Area Label, Image Legend and so on).

Click the Change Font or Change Color button(s) to set defaults...

Default Font Area
Change Font Click the Change Font button, a Font dialog opens. From here, select the type, style and size of the font for the selected object.
Default Color Area
Change Color Click the Change Color button, the Color dialog opens. From here, select the default color of the selected font or object.
AutoNaming Highlight
Change Color  Allows you to set the color AutoNaming uses to highlight the regions of the drawing where it located the Sheet No. and Sheet Name. 
Transparency Allows you to adjust how transparent or opaque the label box AutoNaming shows to indicate where it identified the Sheet No. and Sheet Name. 


These default settings only affect new Annotations, they won't affect any Annotations you've already drawn. If you want to change an existing Annotation, you just right-click it on the Image Window.

For "Dimension Lines", setting the color changes the color of the text label, not the line itself - Dimension Lines are always black.
