Chapter 41. Checking Spelling > Picking a Search Range

Picking a Search Range

Like QuarkXPress, InDesign can check the spelling of a word, a selection of text, your current story, or your current document. Unlike XPress, it can also search multiple selected stories and all of your stories in all open documents. It’s not necessary to separately check your master pages, as you must do in XPress, since InDesign searches master pages whenever you search your document.

To select a word or a range of text, use the Type tool to make the selection. To select a story, either click within the story with the Type tool, or select the story’s frame with the Selection tool (or one frame from a series of linked frames). To select multiple stories, Shift-select their frames with the Selection tool. To search one or more documents, make sure they’re open.
