Cannot match the color name

This singleton run-time message occurs when generating a diary using InDesign, if an instruction is encountered to set the color of some text, paragraph or box element to a color which does not exist in any of the templates of the current script.


This message is often due to InDesign color names being different from the color names of QuarkXPress, as a consequence of converting a script from QuarkXPress to InDesign.




This message is generated during diary generation, just before InDesign is launched, but you should have had a corresponding design-time message originating from any of the properties where you can specify a change of font (such as minicalendars and macros).
