I was a QuarkXPress user for many years. I've now been using InDesign for a long time, but I still find myself trying to use certain key commands from my Quark days. There's one that I wish would work in InDesign, but I can't figure out how to do it.
If I have a text box with text in it that hass multiple sizes (for instance, the headline is 12 points and the text body is 9 points) and I want to adjust BOTH sizes at once, in Quark I could select all the text and hold down the Shift, Option and Command keys (I'm on a Mac)... and hit the "greater than" or "less than" keys. This adjusts all text up or down a point size. Is there a way to do this in InDesign? Thanks...
Same combo, in the default shortcuts, without the option key, will adjust the type size according to your increment set in the prefs. Add the Opt key to jump 5x the increment.
Thanks! I had tried that, but it didn't work right. I must have done something else, because it works now. Mine was jumping two points when I don't hold down the option key, so I just changed that in preferences to be one point. Thanks again!
