I am having a problem where lines of text are highlighted yellow for no reason. I checked paragraph styles and made sure no rules were applied, turned off highlighting for hyphenation and justification, and it still shows. Any ideas on how to fix??

Is it possible there is conditional text set to Indicator > Method: Highlight and Appearance > Color: Yellow? The Conditional Text panel is under Window > Type & Tables.

It's not for no reason. Those are composition highlights for H&J violations.

You can turn it off in your preferences.

If you read my above post, I already checked H&J violations and they are turned off in my preferences. The text still shows yellow.

I posted a screenshot of the text in my original post. The text turning yellow is whenever i copy and paste from a different document i'm noticing. Could that have something to do with it?

Yes, it could. Try paste without formatting instead of paste as the first troubleshooting step.

 

Paste could carry a style conflict with it.

Yes, I am working in someone else's doc and didn't know they had set up conditional text for certain sections. Thank you so much David!

So, here's what happened. Bringing in that text brought the formatting along.

By using paste without formatting, it only brought the text and honored the style in the document you're pasting into.

Actually I did read the entire discussion. Have no idea how the text was imported to the ID file. 

This is an already established file that I am cleaning up. 

Conditional text didn't seem to bring any results. 

Glyphs have nothing to do with it.

Bob, you are usually more helpful 🙂

My original answer was to check composition preferences to see if highlighting of H&J violations is enabled. That is still my answer since you haven't indicated anything else that you tried.
