    You can Change all text after the fact, by

    1. Clicking on Select arrow in memnubar the going to menu and choosing Edit menu > select all (or command A should work).
    2. Then right click and from popup menu choose properties.
    3. choose appearance (should allow you to change font color but not fonts used)

     

    you can change individual words by

    1. clicking on Text edit button in menu bar shows a T in small caps.
    2. Then highlight word or desired words and right click and choose properties.
    3. Then choose Appearance. you can change color from there.

     

    The ideal way though is my changing color in original Document first the create a new PDF. If the PDF has been made into a Form do the following:

     

    after you have edit original docoment

    1. save as a slightly different name as a PDF.
    2. Open orignal PDF choose document from Main menu choose replace Pages
    3. Start from first page and choose replace all pages.

    If nothing changed except text color then you form field will saty as they are.

    As long as you figured what to do is all that matters. You did much as I said except I was referring to use of the mouse to do the slecting of desire text. But the way did id okay as well.

    This the Apple Color Picker choose any method at the very top of Picker it pick any color.

     

    Exact steps I suggested ( just didn't put the illustrations)

     

    You can click on the select Tool, use Select all from edit menu and then click on Properties and follow the same steps.

    You can click on Select tool Acrobatpicture001.pngand then to edit menu and Select ALL and choose properties then you could change all the text color.

     

     

    But you can choose the Text Edit Tool Acrobatpicture002.pngto change color on individual words or phrases.

     

    And yes I guess I did  have a bad Proof reading time.
