Change color in "draw free form" quickly

I use the "draw free form" when I make presentations, but it is annoying every time I wish to change color since I have to right-click, select properties, click on color and then select the new color.

Is there a more convenient way to do this?

Bring up the "Pencil tool properties" bar (Ctrl-E or Cmd-E) while the tool is selected. This gives you a one-click mechanism to change the tool's properties (color, pen width, author).

The commands Ctrl-E or Cmd-E are convenient, but they don't seem work in Full Screen Mode, which is what I need for my presentations. Any suggestions?
Is there a way to activate them in Full Screen Mode?

I don't think so. You may have to switch out of full screen mode (Ctrl-L or Cmd-L), change the color and then use Ctrl-L or Cmd-L to go back to full screen mode.

A custom plug-in would be able to e.g. use shortcut keys to access different color configurations, but that would require custom development just for you.
