Is there a way to batch modify text frames?

I just got a proof copy back from KDP and noticed the margins were not correct.

 

I have corrected the margins, but now it seems I will need to go to each page one at a time to resize the text frame for the new margins.  Is this the correct/only approach to resize all of the pages to the new margins?

Just to clarify - I have corrected the margins on my parent pages and applied to all pages. The issue is just that the text frames are sized on all pages for the previous margins

The way to do this is: (1) Go back to your original document, before you readjusted the margins on the master pages and applied that to all pages.

(2) In the Scripts Panel, in the Community folder, there's a script called "Snap Margins to Text Frame." That script will allow you to resize a text frame to the correct size and readjust the entire document to match.

Instructions for using that script are on my website, here: https://www.id-extras.com/snap-margins-to-text-frame/ .
