Depends on whether your words are still editable text or have been created as outlines.

If text:

-Double click on words to get text cursor

-Highlight words to be changed

-Select colour

If outlines:

-Double click text

-At the top of your working window, you should see an arrow and the word

-You should now be able to select the individual letters of the words in your text and will be able to change the colours on a letter by letter basis.

-Change the colour of the words you want

-Click the arrow at the top (by ) to return to your regular document view

Hope that helps — I was trying to explain it as quickly as possible!

I’m learning but I think you get the arrow tool & click on the text so it brings up the blue box that holds it & then drag the box using the mouse. Or I use the arrow keys on the keyboard (on a Mac) to move it just a little. Does this work for you?

EDIT: That’s actually just to move all the text in the text box, so if you have other words in the sentence, that probably won’t work.
