This feature has been added to Freehand. Users are able to change the pencil color by clicking the ••• menu at the top left, then clicking Change my default color.

Hey there, welcome to the InVision Community. Currently, there is not a way to change the pencil tool or text color in Freehands, but these are potential features that our Product team is tracking. 

I'm opening up a ticket with our Support team so we can add your vote to this request. Thanks!

Yes looking forward to this feature. Hot pink annotations aren't working well for my project. Thank you ahead of time for this feature!

I agree - I'd love to see options other than hot pink, even if it's just one and it's gray or black. Hot pink isn't working for me in this particular business setting, so I have to use a tool other than Invision.
