Exporting whole book as .rtf

Exporting whole book as .rtf

Exporting whole book as .rtf

Hello! A couple of days ago I exported all of a book I had designed with unlinked text boxes into one .rtf file, instead of individual stories .rtf files. I then save the .rtf file as a Word .doc. The problem is, I am trying to do it again with another book like it, I thought I did ot the same way,  but now all it is saving is the type that I click in and I don't remember what I did before to get the whole book. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

RE: Exporting whole book as .rtf

All your text threads need to be threaded.

If you select a word then only that word will be exported.

You need to just place the text cursor in the text box with nothing highlighted.

There is an ExportAllStories.jsx in the Scripts Panel, run that and it will export all the stories, i.e., unthreaded frames, into separate .rtfs, you would need to assemble them manually into one Word file.
