Chapter 3. Text > Exporting Text

Exporting Text

When you need to get your text back out of an InDesign publication and back into some other program—a text editor, word processor, or database—you can export the text in a variety of text formats. To export a story, follow these steps (see Figure 3-40).

1.
Select the story you want to export (click the Text tool in the story) and choose Text from the Export submenu of the File menu (or press Command-E/Ctrl-E). InDesign displays the Export dialog box.

2.
Choose an export format for the text from the Format pop-up menu. Note that some of the items in this pop-up menu, like EPS or PDF, don’t export your story; they export the whole page (or document). To export the text, choose Text Only (which will export the text without any formatting), Rich Text Format (RTF), or Adobe InDesign Tagged Text (which we’ll discuss in “Working With InDesign Tagged Text,” later in this chapter).

3.
Specify a name and location for the file.

4.
Click the Save button to export the story.
