I feel like an idiot because I can't figure this out. I know this cannot be as tricky as it seems to be.
We've got an index where the letters are in front of blocks of color. The entire line is highlighted. I cannot figure out how to turn the color off, or change the color (short of deleting the swatch and replacing it). Mostly, I can't figure out what setting is making that happen. It appears to be a paragraph formatting effect, but I can't be sure. It's attached to a paragraph style, and when I choose a different paragaph style, the color-behind effect goes away - but I've been through all the options in the style, and none of them say, 'highlight the whole line'. I can't even find a reference to the color being used.
I can just hand-format the copy, but what I really want is to find out where this setting is hiding and why I can't find it.
If the color is a pale pink, it means that the font associated with that paragraph style is not active on your computer. The other option would be a paragraph rule set up in the style.
I checked the paragraph rule. It was set to Rule Above, but it wasn't turned on.
So I checked Rule Below, and it was on. I just didn't see it because I was looking at the settings for Rule Above. I can't believe I missed something that simple.
Thanks for the help!
