If someone wanted to select all content within the Header separator bar and the Body, could this be done via script or menu commend?  I have not found that menu command.

Can you show screenshot of what you want?

Here's a screenshot.   I have not found a way to select text or run Find/Change in both segments (Header + Body).  I wanted to ask, just in case I was overlooking something.

Please pardon me, I don't understand native of this "header" and "body". This is not a story, not a table in it. What is it? Please show how it looks in layout tab. Can you share through dropbox this part of file (not all your work)?

   Here is a grab of Layout View.  There are distinct frames for Header and Body.  I will see if InCopy allows me to save this out ... for a dropbox share

George, it appears I cannot save a true InCopy file out for examination.  InCopy is running inside a CMS that also has plugins and it is likely those plugins overwrite Adobe's Save As ... feature as it is grayed out, and instead users have a Save Content menu command -- of course, because this feeds the database.


So it might have been a terrible question I asked to begin with.

Terrible, but interesting! 🙂

 

Sorry, but I don't know the answer here. Is this CMS have a known name?
