I read:

there should be a hot spot in the upper left corner of the canvas which
will open a properties dialog when right clicked where you can set the
dimensions, label text and font

> (2) In 7-quis-INTRO.pd, how are those red boundary lines drawn? 

they are just very thin canvasses

> different fonts and colors than the normal PD comments. How is this

see (1)
hope that helps,
