What you are describing is Paragraph Styles: font, size, justification, etc. When you use a paragraph style say for the body text and want to make a global change, just modify the paragraph style assigned to body text. Can you give an example of the "set of text frames on every page". Also if you can tell us what version of ID are you using, Mac/Windows?

You could also use an object style that contains paragraph styling information.
Yes, of course. Thanks. When I refered to the text frames, I meant the size and shape and placement of the frames.
So I can manipulate all the font and text attributes through Paragraph Styles, and I can manipulate all the text frames by changing the Master Page.
Perfect. (I have the latest ID on a Mac running Mountain Lion.)
I'll check into that. I imagine the object style would be attached to the text frame?
Thanks for the help.
Yes. Object styles are applied to inidvidual objects. You can define things like Paragrah styles, strokes, fills, and anchored object positioning, but you can't include frame dimensions or the position of a frame if it isn't anchored.
