I have a quick question about the Color Theme Tool bar. I accidently clicked it and now it is on my screen forever and I can't get it off. Is there any way to get it off my screen?

The two standard ways to dismiss the floating tool bar for the Color Theme tool: (1) Press the Escape tool closes it so you could choose another sample. (2) Choosing another tool (like the Selection tool) temporarily hides it but will reappear if you choose the Color Theme tool again.

 

If that doesn't work, I'd quit out of InDesign.

I tried ESC but it didn't work so I ended up having to quit InDesign to make that bar go away.

I had the same issue. ESC didn't work. Quitting and restarting did.

I had it hanging around all day, if you reselect the Colour Theme Tool.. keep it active, then.. hit Escape, and you're good!

If you bring another window on top of the indesign window and then get back to indesign, the color theme bar goes away. It might be a refresh issue. Esc does not work.
