Ability to apply color to some or all of the individual style names in paragraph/character style palettes.
It would be so great to be able to apply color to some or all of the individual style names in paragraph/character style palettes, the way we can in the drop-down tool palettes.
The InDesign interface is terribly small (compared to Illustrator or Photoshop) and even my special computer glasses -- in conjunction with a 43-inch monitor -- are unable to compensate. There are times when I have 30-50 styles for large projects but use particular ones consistently over the others. I have a very hard time picking these out without stopping to stare, get close, examine the palette -- even if I've typed them in ALL CAPS. I just laid out a book which required four versions of the same style but all with different indents across the page, plus accompanying separators, each of those with different indents as well, and they had to be applied five to 10 times on the same pages, so you can imagine how much clicking was going on. I set up ten shortcuts to manage them all, but anytime I needed to access them directly (such as to edit or duplicate), they were lost in the many other paragraph styles in the palette unless I pulled up close to the interface and searched. It was very tedious. And this is just one project. I've run into this many times. If the interface can't be enlarged, can we at least color code within the palettes the way we can within the drop-down tools?
I've included a partial screenshot of a para styles palette. It may look easy enough to read, but in real-time view, it is tiny on the screen. I hoped my 43" monitor would give me a larger interface but without changing the resolution and affecting other programs that are fine, no joy.
