I don't seem to be able to change color or style of page numbers in master pages. Any font is bold and black although I can change size.

You should be able to select the page number field in the master page and apply a character style, or select the entire paragraph in which the page number field lies and apply a paragraph style, or both.  I apply a paragraph style, as my typical page footers have three tabbed positions (left, right and center) and the paragraph style gives me the tab properties as well.

I don't know if non-styled character overrides work on a master page, as I've never tried that.  But defining a character style and applying should definitely work.

Works fine for me. Here's a red page number on the Master Page

and here it is on a document page that inherits from that Master:

They format just like any other characters.

GENTLEMEN... I understand the that "you should be able to..." what I'm saying is it does not work for me.

Sequence I used... create new master page > make text box > select menu/type/insert/fields/page number

The # appears but no parameter can be changed except font size.

What am I missing?

Making a wild guess here, I think your Character Style NUMBERS has a black stroke applied to it.

Do so in the Text Styles panel. Select it, right click and choose delete from the dropdown menu.

Edit after realizing there is a Nullify question too.

To cancel it just choose a different style or [no style] from the character styles.

You had both a character style and a paragraph style showing in your screenshot.
