Color management in indesign None, White, Paper

When do you select paper, white or none when coloring text in Indesign in simple form? Ive always used white and have printed many projects over the years but don't know when to select the other options. Explanations on internet are hard to understand. Shouldn't have waited so long to know.

• White is the hue/color white.
You have to select a "white" from
a Swatch Library. InDesign does not
have a default of "white" in the Swatches panel.

• None is no color at all.

• Paper is the actual color of the paper.
If text is set to [Paper] (an app default
that cannot be deleted), the text will
"knockout" any and all colors below the text
to show the color of the paper stock being used.

Example: If the paper stock is yellow, with the text set
to [Paper], placed atop a blue rectangle,
when printed, the text will cut out the rectangle
and will appear as yellow (the color of the paper stock).

The color of the [Paper] setting can be changed
to simulate any color paper stock being used.
It just happens to have a default setting of "White',
C0, M0, Y0, K0.

You're welcome.

This also why some use the default
"[Paper]"setting as the color for "white"
type when printing on white paper stock.
One less color to spec.
