In InDesign CC (as in most applications that allow text entry) when I select all or a portion of text to edit, change font or size, etc., the selected text (as well as its background) turn to a different color. This notifies the user that that text is now ready for editing.
While this method works fine with editing for content, it interferes greatly with the ability to edit for layout or other aesthetic matters. Other applications offer an easy way to override that color-change and leave selected text looking just like unselected text, but I've not found any such feature in InDesign. How does one override (turn off) the color-change of selected text?
(P.S. I'm hesitant to use the word "highlighted" to mean selected text, as highlighted text in InDesign is another thing entirely.)
