Change font color of the insertions and deletions revisions

I am trying to change the font color of the insertions and deletions. I am using below code and not sure what is wrong in this as I am not able to change any colors.

public void Compare(string document1, string document2, string comparisonDocument, ref int added, ref int deleted)
added = 0;
deleted = 0;

        // Load both documents in Aspose.Words
        Document doc1 = new Document(document1);
        Document doc2 = new Document(document2);
        Document docComp = new Document(document1);
        DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(docComp);

        doc1.LayoutOptions.RevisionOptions.InsertedTextColor = Aspose.Words.Layout.RevisionColor.BrightGreen;

        doc1.LayoutOptions.RevisionOptions.DeletedTextColor = Aspose.Words.Layout.RevisionColor.DarkYellow;

        doc1.Compare(doc2, "a", DateTime.Now);

        foreach (Revision revision in doc1.Revisions)
            switch (revision.RevisionType)
                case RevisionType.Insertion:
                case RevisionType.Deletion:
            Console.WriteLine(revision.RevisionType + ": " + revision.ParentNode);

        Debug.WriteLine("Revisions: " + doc1.Revisions.Count);

Please help.

Hi, Please find the required documents attached in a zip file. In the code deletion color was mentioned as DarkYellow but I need it to be RED and Insertion to be Green as shown in the desired comparison document.
