I am using InDesign CC in Windows. In layout mode, when I select a block of text with the text tool (to make a correction for example) the highlight color of the selected text is dark blue and that makes the selected text virtually invisible. I’ve searched preferences for a place to change the color of this and can not find it. Anybody know where it’s hiding?
Thanks David. That one was bugging me as well. For Windows 7 users, go to Control Panel > Personalization > Window Color then in the resulting Window Color and Appearance panel choose Selected Items from the Item drop-down, change Color 1 to something of your choosing, and Apply.
We regularly scan forms, or film, to use as FPOs when recreating them for a digital workflow.
Now, with InDesignCC, we can not see through the new text highlight color
in order to match the FPO type under the new InDesign document.
Does anyone know how to make the highlight work like in the past – as it should.
What is the point in making that text highlight color opaque?
Yeah, Adobe made an about-face on this… very frustrating.
Now (in CC 9.2, which was released in January), InDesign on both Mac and Windows I believe, just reverses out the text — like it used to do in CS6 and earlier. No way to change the highlight color.
