I have several text boxes on one page in InDesign that are the same font and size. I know how to change the font for all at once but I want to change the font size of the text in every text box at once and can't figure out how. Is there a way?

Hi Kimberly:

This is a great reason to use styles, but if you aren't, you can select the all of the text frames with the Selection tool, and then change the type size from the Character panel.

Hi Penelope:

 

If you edit each of the three styles individually, InDesign will locate all of the paragraphs using those three styles and update those for you. 

 

On the other hand, if you just need those three paragraphs to be bigger, you can select the frame with the Selection tool, hold Cmd+Sh or Ctrl+Sh and resize the frame. The text will adjust with the frame. Please know that if you're using styles, then you are applying overrides to those styles with this method.
