Coloring Objects

You can change the color of any selected object by either choosing a color from the Color palette or clicking on a swatch in the Swatches palette.

Fills and Strokes

Objects in InDesign can have both their fill (the color, gradient, or pattern inside an object) and their stroke (the actual lines or borders that define the object) changed. The fill/stroke proxy in the toolbox, the Color palette, and the Swatch palette controls what is being changed. The solid square represents fill, whereas the hollow square represents stroke. Whichever of these is in front controls what is in focus. To make the stroke active when the fill is in front, click the stroke proxy. To make the fill active when the stroke is in front, click the fill proxy.
