In word 2010 (or any version really) how do you get text's current color?
I just end up having to approximate the color in the palette picker. There must be a better way.

  • One normally goes to Font Color / More Colors / Custom to see the RGB or HSL values of the color.

    Anything more involved than that requires using VBA macros.
    See for example this article: Colours in Word 2007.
