My novel has 48 chapters and 6 appendices. I have changed the title, however.
In indesign, I created a separate file for each chapter and each appendix. I set up via master pages to have page numbering on bottom of each page, and book title on top of left page and my name (author) on top of right page.
I put them all in a book file to export, etc to KDP. So far so good, but now I need to change the title.
There has to be a way (using master pages?) to change the title on each of my odd pages without manually opening each chaper, each page... (There are 243 pages in all) But what is it?

open all documents of that book file and run a GREP Find/Change on all open documents.
Suggestion of the Find pattern:
^The title you want to change$
with the applied paragraph style. Let's hope you did not apply this paragraph style outside of your headings.
The new title
Could you write out the old title and also the new title so that I could perhaps see problem characters that should be encoded specially with GREP?

Good idea. Thank you, Uwe...
But I don't have a new title yet...
I'll try this out, though
If your titles are on Master Pages, and the Master Pages are the same name in each document, you should be able to use the Synchronize options in the book panel to make the change globally.
Thanks for sharing your idea with me.
I haven't tried fiddling with master pages
