sorry, to be critical against your workflow, but if you have to click 
select text across 200 frames or through longer parts of text (i don't 
know what exactly you mean with 200 times... are you aware that there 
are keys like up, down, page up, page  down, home and end? and even next 
word and previous word?) you're imo doing something wrong...

even if you have 200 cases where you have a shorter selection which 
crosses the frame boundary... your workflow does not seem well optimized 
to me...


p.s.: i've tried to apply the method i was describing in my previous 
mail and, while you can indeed see the selection crossing the frame 
boundaries, applying a formatting (or copying the text) will only use 
the selection in the (newly) active frame: so, no, this won't work for 
you anyway...
