Indesign - Library Palette will not drag & drop
Having trouble with my "Library Palette" in Indesign. I have my layers selected so I can place in the library palette but receive a negative symbol so I'm not allowed to drag and drop. I have to manually set each library palette with items when transfering layers or files on my library palette.
Selecting the items
then on the library palette side arrow
add items on page 1 as separate objects
After going to a new document/or another file
select items in the library palette
then place item(s)
Does anyone know what the cause would be where I am not allowed to drag files/layers into my library palette and vise versa to the layers palette? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
The Library panel (or file) is for storing objects, not layers. You cannot drag from the Library to the Layers panel. You drag onto the page or spread to place your library snippets. You might check on whether the layer is locked or not. You might go to preferences > file handling > snippet import and see which way the preference is set.
You can't drag library items onto locked layers. Make sure the layer you want to drag the item(s) to is unlocked. Tim
