    removing swatch colour from character style

    jonht Level 1

      Hi,

      I'm doing a find/change via script to remove the fill colour from a character style.

      So far I've got it to replace the current colour with None, using this:

         app.changeGrepPreferences.fillColor = myDocument.colors.item("None");

       

      But what I really need is to replace it with the question mark symbol, like below, so it can inherit another colour I've applied via a grep style.

      Doing this manually in Indesign I would Control+click the swatch.

       

      I've spent the last couple of days looking for the magic bit of code I'm missing with no luck, hopefully you guys can help.

       

      Cheers,

      John
