Applying a different swatch not always working (bug?)
It happens every now and then that changing the color of text by selecting the text with the text tool and clicking on the desired swatch does not change anyting. You can select the desired color, but the text color stays the same. It does not seem to be document related and is not always happening. If you use the color picker to select a random color from the document, the problem disappears. You can find more comments and examples on this issue in the Support Community: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/can-t-change-colors-from-the-swatch-panel/m-p/11859690
At this moment I am running ID CC 16.1 on a fully updated 'heavy duty' Windows 10 pc of 2 years old. I cannot reproduce the issue at the moment, because it does not happen all the time and I am currently not experiencing problems (a few days ago I did though, but had no time for posting).
