Is it possible to select (or delete) several objects on multiple pages or spreads at once in InDesign? And I would like to do this via the UI. I can only select objects on a given spread at most.

This thread for CS3 indicates that it is not possible: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/selecting-text-frames-on-multiple-pages/m-p/1126364?page=1#M...

 

My question is for CS4.

Thanks.

Same in nowadays. There is no way through interface. Do you need to move all the objects? Here you go - https://creativepro.com/move-every-object-on-every-page-toward-or-away-from-spine/

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner

Hi George. Thanks. No, I just wanted to delete them all. It's a basic feature, one would think. It's possible in Illustrator.
