In the New Zealand Template the default color for elements placed on the Master Layouts is red.
If for some reason you feel that red doesn’t suit you, you can change the colour by going to
Options>Work Environment>On-Screen Options…
In the dialog box that pops up either turn off the option “Use uniform color for Master items on Layouts:” or:
click on the color swatch and simply choose the color you wish to use to bring out the color in your eyes!
