Change Fonts of one colour to another colour

Hi Everyone, 

 

I'm at my wits end.

 

I have a document which uses a specific shade of blue for some body text, and a specific shade of red for other body text, and I want to change both of these colours to black, whilst preserving the colours of all other fonts in the document (i.e. I don't want to convert the whole document to black)

 

How can I acheive this?

 

I have tried using the Preflight tool "Convert to Spot Colour", but this doesnt seem to do anything when I provide the CYMK or RGB colour values of these colours, unless I set tolerance to maximum, at which point it changes all colours in the whole document to black. 

 

For example, I have a font that Output preview tells me is C - 80%, M - 21%, Y - 0%, K - 0%. I have tried putting these in as CMYK (%) at 80, 21, 0, 0, with spot colour name "Blueish1" and Alternate Colour Space RGB (%) 0,0,0,0.

 

This only works if I set the tolerance to 100%, and again, changes everything to black.

 

There is only one image in the document, and while it does contain the colour I'm trying to modify, I don't care if its modified.

 

I'm very tempted to export to Word and do it in there.

 

Think about that. Its much easier for me to modify a colour document-wide in Microsoft Word than Adobe DC Pro. Its right there in the find/replace window.
