New to indesign... working on a book file which comprises 25 chapters.
I'd like to do a final proof to ensure all double spaces have gone, all quote marks are right etc
Instead of opening each chapter and using "search/find" through each chapter, can i tell the "search/find" function through the whole book?
Appreciate any feedback
There is no special "Search book" facility within InDesign. You have to open all the files you want to search and then use the "search all documents" option within the Search window. That, and other shortcomings of book have led me to consolidate all my book chapters into one file.
Apparently Adobe thought that would be more appreciated than a book-wide Search/Replace.
You can read all about CS5's new features, and their selection procedure, on http://indesignsecrets.com/michael-ninness-answers-indesign-cs5-critic s.php. The "Book" feature doesn't even get mentioned under "Sorry, we didn't change that at all." Also make sure to read the comments -- it seems lots of people really want more book features.
If you're one of them (so it seems), you might want to pay a visit to https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
