How do I create a story in InDesign?

Creating a story in InDesign with GoProof is quick and easy. There are three ways to do it. Open your InDesign document, go to the Window menu, select Extensions and then GoProof. From the extension, select the Stories tab, making sure you have selected the Client and Project for your stories.

1. Creating a single Story per document (all text frames)


1.1. Click on the + ≡ icon within the Stories tab of your GoProof extension.

1.2. Enter a story name, leave the Create a story per page checkbox option unticked and click Create to add all the text frames in your document to your Story.

2. Creating a single Story per document (selected text frames)


2.1. Select a text frame and bring up the right-click menu.
2.2. Select the GoProof sub-menu and then the Add to story option.

2.3. Create a name for your story and click OK.

3. Creating a Story per page


3.1. Click on the + icon within the Stories tab of your GoProof extension and enter your story name.


3.2. Make sure you tick the Create a story per page checkbox option and click Create.


Tip: If you wish to create a Story for each page of your document and add all the text frames from each page to their corresponding page story in one go, the Story per page option is the quickest way to do it. Should you want more control over which text frames to add to your Story, then the Story per document (Selected text frames) option is the best one for you.

You will see a green T icon on each text frame that has been successfully added to your stories, provided you are viewing your InDesign document in Normal mode.

The text frames are also displayed as a list under your chosen story in the Stories tab. Clicking on the text frames list will highlight the said text frames in your InDesign document.

Note: Only text frames are possible to be added to a story.
