With a 2-d graphic: just select the graphic (not the cell), open the  
Graphic Inspector and you can change the colour, dashing, put on  
arrowheads etc, all with the sliders or by clicking on the colour  
I have not yet tried searching for this in the documentation; the  
whole approach is so similar graphic programs like FreeHand or  
Illustrator work that I had no difficulty guessing wihtout reading  
any documentations. Like in the good old early days of the Mac ;-)
