Selecting paragraph
on Jul 18, 2007 at 8:26:28 am

Hi chaps .... newbie to Indesign here and working my way through some tutorials I see that the best way to select a paragraph is to click 4 times with the mouse .... It doesn't seem to work on my mac .... any thoughts please ? and is there an alternative ?

Many thanks Roger

Clicking quickly 4 times will select the entire paragraph...unless you have the preference "triple click to select a line" de-selected. If so, you only need to click 3 times to select a paragraph (double-click is a word, triple-click is a line if selected in prefs, and 4 clicks is a paragraph)...it sounds like you might have that preference de-selected and so when you hit the 4th click, you're back to square one with your cursor just sitting there.

If you are making adjustment to paragraph-level settings (alignment, margins, etc. from the paragraph palette), you only need to have your cursor in the paragraph. If you're trying to change type or other character level settings, then you will need to select everything.

Hope this makes sense...the heat has gone to my head!
