Does anyone know how to find a blue font colour in Word 2007 please? Sometimes I receive pretranslated files with text partially in blue. But i should deliver it without colours. In Word 2000 that blue was a part of a standard set of colours. But in Word 2007 there is no such blue at hand. I have to go back to Word 2000 just to change the colours. I know that there are many ways to avoid this problem, but let's just say that I want to leave it this way and change that blue in Word 2007. Can anybody help me? The blue I am talking about is the standard blue used by Trados.

Check the composition of this blue in Word 2000 Dec 23, 2009

AFAIR it should be RGB 0/0/255 - so you just can set this coulour in Word 2007 via individual colours.
Just click on font colour, then chose "More colours", click the tab "Custom" and set the colour to 0/0/255 RGB. This should match the Trados blue (it is a standard blue).
