Color change not in all Callouts?

Am I correct in assuming that not all call out shapes have the ability to have their color changed in Camtasia?  I wanted to add callouts that pointed to the 3 primary colors reflected in a photographic histogram, each reflecting the color it pointed to.  But I couldn't figure out how to change the color in that little cloud callout with the pointer.  Yet some other callouts appear to have that ability but they aren't the ones I want.

Is there a way for a user familiar, comfortable with, and unafraid of script editing to create his or her own call outs by copying and modifying existing callouts?

I have had no problem (knock on wood) changing the colors in the callouts except the transparent ones.

Are you making sure to select the Annotations tab in the properties panel?

I 'THINK' I selected the Annotations tab.  I am under the impression I tried all 3 tabs.  And I did notice that SOME call outs had the ability to change color, but not all.  Not the ones I wanted.

It's late at night for me, I will try again tomorrow, when I am fresher.
