From the main menu, select Graphics > Drawing Tools to pop up the 2D Drawing palette. By selecting from that palette a tool such as the point icon, you may now click inside the 2D graphic and insert a point, etc. To change color, thickness, point size, etc., either use Graphics > Graphics Inspector or else click the slider/color swatch icon at the bottom of the 2D Drawing palette to open the 2D Graphics Inspector panel. You may now first select the color/thickness, etc., combination you want and then click the graphic element you want to change in the graphic -- something you added with one of the tools, or an originally displayed graphic element, e.g., the curve from a Plot. Or, first select the graphic element and then choose the color/thickness, etc. When selecting, say, the curve from a Plot, be sure to click until you see the enlarged circles indicating the points used in the plot.
