    Ctrl-A will select all text in a story.

    Added: but I think you know that. I don't think there is a possibility to select all text in all stories.

    Yes but there's text in different boxes. If I Ctrl-A the boxes it doesn't work. If I choose the "T" cursor it only copys the text in that particular box and not the others.

    You might get a better answer if you explain what you are trying to do. WHY do you want to select all the text in a doent? What do you plan to do with it after you select it?

    Based on the "and then paste" at the end of the question, it seems that Alfred wants to replace all the text in his doent with what's on the clipboard.

    Seems an odd thing to want to do. Just as you can't select unconnected text, you can't replace it either.

    You can chain existing text frames together. The text will be merged into one chain. Note that no characters will be inserte, so add a frame break (numeric Enter) at the end of each text frame first.
