Today I started on chapter 5 and got to chapter 8 in the InDesign CC Essentials Training.

Here I turned how to find a word, group of words, different types of characters, etc. All using the find text box-window-thing.

In the image I changed the text frames FILL to Orange/40%-70% Opacity with a STROKE of Black/100% Opacity.

Here I inverted, or rather, switched the Fill and Stroke by clicking the small switch icon found at the right of the image shown below.
