Big blobs when I type or import text in InDesign

When I type text or import text into InDesign, I get a big black oddly shaped box on the page that bears no resemblence to text. What is wrong?  I am totally baffled. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    can you post a screen capture? We can give better advice if we can see the problem.


    off thetop of my head I'm guessing that your leading is set to zero and maybe your tracking is set to something crazy as well, causing your type to sit on top of itself and clump up.


    hope that's useful.

    Hi LFern, did you ever resolve this issue? I'm curious to learn what the cause actually was.
