RSA-RTE: Allow setting font color for state internal transitions

The "new" view for state internal transitions shows them in a compartment below the state diagram instead of on the border (as in RoseRT). It's not possible to set such a transition's font color though. Using a different color can be a useful way to distinguish "error / alternate flow" from "happy flow" transitions.
Note: the old RoseRT visualization can also be used in which this is still possible, but it would be convenient to also have this possibility in the compartmented view.

    I guess adding comments is enough as an alternative, so agree to close this RFE.

    No, we don't support colorizing these texts, but what you can do now (RSARTE 9.1.2 CP1 2015.43 and later) is to display comments in that compartment. You can use comments on individual transitions, or comments on the enclosing state (useful in order to group several related transitions).
