InDesign CS6 Swatch Pallet Frozen

My Swatch Pallet seems to have frozen up. I cannot make any swatch or color selections. Anybody experience this? Fix?

    Try trashing the prefs. See Replace Your Preferences

    Do they work if you create and log in with a new user account?

    Same thing happened to me. I was able to assign colors on the toolbar, but not the pallet. I upgraded to 8.0.1 and now it seems fine.

    A new user is a basic diagnostic step. If it works in a new user, the problemn is in the original user account configuartation someplace, if it doesn't, it's more likely an application problem.

    A reinstall doesn't necessarily remove corrupt user info. Please test in a new user account.  And what is the OS?

     

    Do youhave any third party plugins? A font manager?

    I'm surprised you didn't report the other usual symptoms of large fonts. That, or mentioning Windows 7 early on woud probably have gotten you a referral to InDesign tools and panels don't respond to mouse clicks (Windows 7/Vista) and the solution a little faster.
