I am having trouble changing the colour of the status area near the top of the screen (the blue bar where the date shows up).

I am going to the 02 - Areas page, then choosing Status Area, then slecting the solid bar of the second type of area. If I then select a different colour (green for example) and click Ok, it goes back to the edit window, still with a blue bar!

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? I have managed to change the colour of other items ok.
