Chapter 22. Character Formatting > Selecting Text for Formatting

Selecting Text for Formatting

As with many other functions, InDesign gives you more flexibility than PageMaker and QuarkXPress in how you select text for formatting. Besides the obvious method of using the Type tool to select a range of text in a text frame, you can also:

  • Use the Selection tool to select one or more unlinked text frames. Formatting applies to all the text in the selected frames. This can be a very quick way of selecting several small text frames—captions, for example—and formatting them all at the same time.

  • In addition, character attributes can be copied with the Eyedropper tool and applied to other type. You can choose which attributes are copied. We discuss this in Chapter 38.
