I can't change fonts or stroke styles/sizes

Mar 15, 2013 7:00 PM



I haven't used my InDesign in a long time. I have CS5 and I am on a PC using Windows 7.


However, today, I tried to do a few very simple things and I can't!


My stroke menu is greyed out. All I can get is a 1pt black stroke.


Then I tried to type some text, and it's stuck on Minion Pro. The program will not let me change fonts, unless I go in through the menu. I can't use the drop-down box to change font or text size.


Edit: Now I've discovered I can't use either selection tool.


What is happening? Please help!
