    Change caption text globally

    dbe4876

      My book background is white, but my caption text is also white

       

      How can I change my caption text globally so that it is black (and 8pt instead of 9pt)?

          Get into Book's thumbnails view, then use Edit > Select All Text Cells.

           

          This will also select the cover text which you may want to have a different colour and size. You can use Cmd+click (Mac) or Ctrl+click to deselect those text boxes, but it is fiddly.

            Thanks for the help but I feel this is a less-than-desirable approach (which you'd probably agree with). I already have a few title text blocks that I'd prefer not to change along with the captions. It would be better if the book module gave us easy edit access to the Presets for all of the text types. There may yet be a way to get there but thus far I haven't discovered it.

              It's the only way to do it. So the method is to use that menu item to select all text blocks, and then deselect those titles that you don't want to change. Or you can go through page by page, again using that menu command - in page view, it only selects the text boxes on that page.
