Whenever I'm working in InDesign, I find it a little annoying to double or triple click on a text frame to select all of the content. Is there a quick way or shortcut to easily select all of the content in the text frame when for instance I select the frame itself and via the shortcut or quick solution, all of the text is selected instead of having to click 3 times?
Yeah I know it was a stretch but since he was annoyed about having to click three times I thought I'd throw a curve ball in there.
Ok then, straight answer? With the Type Tool selected, click once in the text frame, click twice to select one word, click three times to select one line, click four times to select one paragraph, click five times to select all threaded text. It's not that big of a deal. InDesign is a very sophisticated page layout program. There are easy ways and short cuts to do some things but selecting text is not that difficult.
(I just re-read what I wrote and I want to assure everyone that I'm not trying to be an ***, I'm just slightly sarcastic, with a friendly smile!)
Have a Good Friday everyone!
In line with that, Cursor at the beginning of a line, press Shift + End to select the whole line, then Shift + Down Arrow to select an addtional line at a time. Works from the bottom up, too, Using Shift + Home to select to the beginning of a line.
Also, Ctrl(Cmd) + Shift + End/Home will select from the curren tlocation to end or start, respsctively, of a story.
