Hi! I'm using Inquisit 5.0.14.0 and I'm trying to do something really simple - change the colour of the instruction text at the top of each survey page to make the text more salient. 
In the parameters, there is editable code:

%%%%
<instruct>
/fontstyle = ("Helvetica", 2.50%, false, true, false, false, 5, 1)
/txcolor = black
</instruct>

%%%

However, changing the /txcolor parameter here does nothing.
On delving into the documentation, I see that this instruction code is actually for an instruction PAGE, whereas in this script it is used as a CAPTION:

%%%
<surveypage CFQ1>
/caption ="<%parameters.pageinstructions%>"
/fontstyle = ("Helvetica", 3%, false, true, false, false, 5, 1)
/subcaptionfontstyle = ("Helvetica", 1.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/itemfontstyle = ("Helvetica", 3%, true, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/responsefontstyle = ("Helvetica", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/questions = [1 = q1, q2, q3, q4]
/showpagenumbers = false
/showquestionnumbers = false
</surveypage>
%%%

(Yes, all right, I hate Arial, why do you ask?)

Is there a simple way to change just the page caption's colour?

Thank you

Deborah.

No, can't be changed under Inquisit 5.
