I'm trying to place the word "Draft" in light grey and rotated 45 degrees on my
FrameMaker version 8.0 master pages.

rotated text from the graphics toolbox.

But can't find where to modify "black" to any shade of grey; did find a tip to
set it as yellow for output as grey on black-and-white printers, but we now have
ONLY a color printer.

I did this once before but it was many years ago and have lost track of how. Any
