How to simulate paper color in InDesign

When you’re designing for colored paper, you need an easy way to simulate the design.

You can change the on‑screen color of your paper. InDesign makes it easy for you to design for nonwhite paper.
The Paper color appears on‑screen only and does not affect output; it is intended only to simulate designing for colored paper.

  1. Choose Windows > Swatches.
  2. With no text or objects selected, double-click the Paper color in the Swatches panel.
