Find/Change Dialog

Reset Character Color to “Any” in Find Format/Change Format

After spending ten minutes setting up Find Format and Change Format to do a complex operation, I realize that I shouldn't have specified a character color in either one. But in the Character Color section of the palette, there doesn't appear to be a way to empty the fill or stroke color so that InDesign will ignore it. Any way, that is, other than clicking the Clear Format button in the main Find/Change dialog box, wiping out all my settings!


In either Find Format or Change Format's Character Color area, Command/Ctrl-click on the swatch name (not the fill or stroke icon) of the color you mistakenly specified. The color icon will go back to its “Riddler” look (full of question marks, indicating “any color”).
