  • If you don’t see the color that you want, choose More Colors, and then select a color on the Standard or PANTONE® tabs, or mix your own color on the Custom tab.

  • You can fine-tune the font color by choosing Tints and Fill Effects. Or, choose Sample Font Color to extract a sample of any color you point to and click on. You can then apply that color to another element in your publication.
