Sentence Selection (free script)
InDesign has a lot of options to select text:
= Select one word: Double-click word
= Select one line: Triple-click line (depending on Text preferences setting)
= Select to beginning of paragraph: (Ctrl+Shift+Up Arrow)
= Select to end of paragraph: (Ctrl+Shift+Down Arrow)
and so on.
But there’s no way of selecting text one sentence at a time.
This free program is for such action.
Let's agree that a sentence is a part of a paragraph that begins with a capital letter and ends with one of the punctuation marks: a dot, a question mark, an exclamation mark, an ellipsis, or a semicolon.
Place cursor in text, run script, and sentence will be highlighted.
The program highlights sentences in the text, footnotes, and table cells.
For convenience, you can assign a hotkey to this script:
