Count your clicks to fine-tune text selections (InDesign CS5/CS6/CC)

Count your clicks to fine-tune text selections (InDesign CS5/CS6/CC)You can click and drag the cursor over a block of text to select it, but that’s not always the most efficient way. Sometimes a text thread spans across multiple pages, or you almost highlight all the text you need but come up a few words or characters short. An easier way is to insert the cursor in the text block and click the right number of times to get the selection you desire. For example click your cursor anywhere in a word, then:

  • Double-click to select just that one word
  • Click 3 times to select the entire line
  • Click 4 times to select the whole paragraph
  • Click 5 times to select the entire text frame
