Add a rectangular object to the workspace with the Rectangle tool (r key).

Step Two

With the rectangle selected click the Fill and Stroke color boxes in the Properties panel (Cmd/F3 (PC-Ctrl/F3)) to change the object colors.

Step Three

With the rectangle still selected, click the Fill and Stroke color boxes in the Tools panel to select a new color.

Step Four

Click the Stroke or Fill icon above the color box in the Tools panel. With the rectangle still selected, choose Window > Swatches.

Step Five

Click on a color swatch to set the color.

Step Six

Choose Window > Color and click the color picker to select a new color.

Step Seven

With the rectangle deselected, choose a Fill color and select the Paint Bucket tool (k key). Then click the object's fill area.

Step Eight

With the rectangle deselected, choose a Stroke color and select the Ink Bottle tool (s key). Then click the object's stroke.
