Set textfont color in IDE? LC8DP14

I'm used to set the 'global' text color of a field by the Property Inspector by setting the textColor (synonym foreColor) and set the color of chunks of text by script or menu.

I've never been able to set the color of text (or parts of text) in Project Browser or Application Browser. Please tell me, how did you achieve that?
