The Style Override Highlighter will identify all the paragraph and character style overrides that have been applied in a document. Easily toggle the highlights on and off to get a glimpse at any additional formatting that has been added to styled text. You will see not only the basics, like bolded and italicized text, but also kerning, tracking, paragraph spacing, substituted glyphs, and so on.

Note: Paragraph-level overrides are indicated with a bar on the left of each line, and character-level overrides are indicated with typical highlighted text, both in the same light blue color.


This feature can be enabled by clicking the icon in the Paragraph Styles and Character Styles panels, as shown above, or choosing Toggle Style Override Highlighter from the styles panel menus.  A keyboard shortcut can be added to easily access the Toggle Style Override Highlighter option.
