I have text frames on over 200 pages, Is possible to select all text frames at once and decrease their width through Text Frame Options or any other method, as the edges of text frames are closely reached to the edge of page, due to misplaning.

  • Thank you so much my bro My problem was solved according to the modification of Basic Text Frame - Object style. Oct 20, 2021 at 5:22

...I think the only thing one could possibly do is alter the "Basic Text Frame" item in the Object Styles to add an interior offset to text frames with that style applied.

The "Basic Text Frame" style is applied by default to text frames, but that doesn't necessarily mean it hasn't been altered or that there aren't overrides on pages.

  • Size and position can also be set in the object style. Whether or not it works as intended in this case of course depends on how everything is set up.
