Hi everyone,

 

Please excuse me for my english.

 

I'm not very good in Indesign.

 

I have a project with lots of images and I added static captions on them. I scaled up/down some of these images (together WITH the captions attached to them) and everything looks fine, however, later I noticed that the inset spacing (margin) of the captions scales up/down, too. This means that on some images, the inset margin is say 2 mm, on others is 2,35 mm or something, it depends.

 

Can you tell me, please, how can I select all the caption text-boxes at once and modify them so that they look uniform? I tried by using Find, but I couldn't find a specific way to target the caption text-boxes, not other text-boxes.

 

Thank you.

Hi Stavre0D4C,

there is no automatic way to do this with all static caption frames in the whole document.

 

What I suggest:
Create an object style for all your static caption frames and apply it one by one.

So that you can change all frames later in one go by changing the applied object style.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
