  • Change Registration Text to Black in Indesign

    We received a 500+ page file from a client. They set all the text as registration. Ugh. Is there a way to globally change the registration Colored text to just black?

    Find and replace with the text color my friend.

      Simply use the find/change function and define the colors in the Format box.

            Another option is to use a very simply script.

            ALL text will be made black, so watch out for exceptions that are coloured (save the text as a .jsx file, ensure quotes are straight and not curly).

            Code:
            function makeAllTextBlack() {
                    var doc, blackColor;
                    if( !app.documents.length ){ return; }
            
                    doc = app.activeDocument;
                    blackColor = doc.colors.itemByName ( "Black" );
                    if ( !blackColor.isValid )
                    {
                        blackColor = doc.colors.add( {colorSpace:ColorSpace.CMYK, model:ColorModel.PROCESS, colorValue:[0,0,0,100], name:"Black"} );
                    }
                    try
                    {
                        doc.stories.everyItem().fillColor = blackColor;
                        alert("done");
                    }
                    catch(e)
                    {
                        alert(e+" "+e.line);
                    }
                }
            
                makeAllTextBlack();

              This javascript will only change registration colour to black:

              Code:
              // Convert registration color to black
              // https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1990206
              var doc = app.activeDocument;
              app.findObjectPreferences = app.changeObjectPreferences = null;
              app.findObjectPreferences.fillColor = "Registration"; 
              app.changeObjectPreferences.fillColor = "Black"; 
              app.changeObject();
              app.findObjectPreferences = app.changeObjectPreferences = null;
              app.findObjectPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
              app.changeObjectPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing; 
              app.findObjectPreferences = app.changeObjectPreferences = null;
              app.findObjectPreferences.strokeColor = "Registration"; 
              app.changeObjectPreferences.strokeColor = "Black"; 
              app.changeObject();
              app.findObjectPreferences = app.changeObjectPreferences = null;
              app.findObjectPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
              app.changeObjectPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing; 
              app.findTextPreferences = app.changeTextPreferences = null;
              app.findTextPreferences.fillColor = "Registration"; 
              app.changeTextPreferences.fillColor = "Black"; 
              app.changeText();
              app.findTextPreferences = app.changeTextPreferences = null;
              app.findTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
              app.changeTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing; 
              app.findTextPreferences = app.changeTextPreferences = null;
              app.findTextPreferences.strokeColor = "Registration"; 
              app.changeTextPreferences.strokeColor = "Black"; 
              app.changeText();
              app.findTextPreferences = app.changeTextPreferences = null;
