... normally i get a box in which i have to move a circle to pick the colour of my choice.
What? In InDesign?
hehe, well i've learnt almost whatever was required, have started to make my documents on it . big thanks to people on this great forum, gave me a crash course in indesign .
anyway regarding my question.
I was nearly there. I needed to just click on the down arrow that shows the swatches next to the “A” Button. Was double clicking on the a button that gave me those gradient style fill colours menu.
