    Indesign text help

    jil835

      Hi, I am super, super new to InDesign, so please be gentle with me! Thank you!

       

      I made a calendar in InDesign and want to change the color of the text that each month is written in. I select the text and the color palette pops up, but I can only change the shade of black. I can change the color to be any of the CMYK options, but I don't want that. I want the color picker like in Photoshop. How do I change the text to ANY color, and not just CMYK and various tints of such? Why do I not have a broader color picker when I try to fill the text with color? Sorry if I am not being clear in my question, I just want more color options. Thanks!

          You can access a color picker that is similar to the one in Photoshop (but NOT identical) by double-clicking the fill or stroke icon in either the toolbox, the Color Panel, or the Swatches Panel.

           

          You can also use the panel menu in the Color panel to choose a set of sliders if a single slider for a named swatch is showing, and the panel can be expaned to show a small spectrum from which you can sample.
