I need to select all text in a long document to export to rtf. I only seem to be able to select a story. Any ideas in how I can do it?
Can't be done. You'll have to link all text boxes together in one long story, or use the script "ExportAllStories.jsx" that comes with your default InDesign installation.
There are other alternatives (all of them using scripts), and the best way may depend on what your intentions are with the exported file -- if, for example, you want to read it back into their original text frames after editing, well, there are ways to do that.
Thanks Jongware. Very helpul
