Hallo, I thought this would be so simple to discove,r but alas, can not find the answer on help nor on forum previous topics.  I want to select multiple text accross many linked text frames, that's it.  Can not believe that it is not obvious?  Sorry.


Microsoft - Like entering your home and opening the stainless steel kitchen door, with a Popup: 'Do you really want to open this door'? Then looking for the dishwasher and finding it stored in the living room where you have to download a water supply from the app store, then you have to buy microsoft compliant soap, remove the carpet only to be told that it is glued to the floor.. Don't forget to make multiple copies of your front door key and post them to all who demand access to all the doors inside your home including the windows and outside shed.

Apple - Like entering your home and opening the oak framed Kitchen door and finding the dishwasher right in front you ready to be switched on, soap supplied, and water that comes through a water softener.  Ah the front door key is yours and it only needs to open the front door.

Its working fine for me here, unless I'm missing the point. I just use the text cursor to select the text.

Hallo Mick, thanks, just found it, I clicked 5 times to select everything......Mmmm...should not have stopped at 4 times, one extra click and it worked.  Dragging never seemed to work, but after reducing size of pages to in view it then worked albeit awkwardly.

Thankyou.

That was the very first thing I did before seeking the help manual then posting here.  Neither shift click nor ctrl click works.  It only selects one text frame.  5 clicks selects all the text frames or minimize the pages and click drag to the bottom of the computer screen are the only two ways to select all text in all the linked text frames.

Could you be a little bit more precise? You are writing „text frames“. Do you really mean „text frames“ or are you talking about the content of these frames (= the text itself). In other words: Did you select the frames or the text?

I am talking about the text itself.  I assumed that this was clear in my original question when I wrote: "" I want to select multiple text accross many linked text frames""
