Chapter 23. Paragraph Formatting > Selecting Paragraphs

Selecting Paragraphs

InDesign provides several ways to select text when you’re using paragraph formatting:

  • As in XPress and PageMaker, you can place the text insertion point anywhere in the paragraph; you don’t have to select the whole paragraph. Similarly, you can select a range of text in a text frame with the Type tool. Formatting applies to paragraphs included in the range, even if you don’t select all the text in a paragraph.

  • Unlike XPress or PageMaker, you can use the Selection tool to select one or more unlinked text frames. Formatting applies to all the text in the selected frames.

  • In addition, paragraph attributes can be copied with the Eyedropper tool and applied to other type (see Chapter 38).
