    Overset text box question

    BDI-JM

      All,

      I upgraded to CS6 from CS5.5 (windows 7-64)

       

      After opening a indesign 5.5 document in 6.  Many of the text boxes become 'overset' when trying to alter the text with in the cells etc etc.

       

      Also, deleting or find and replacing the text also changes the box to overset. 

       

      Just as strange, even trying to re-size the box creates the overset.

      all I did here was drag the corner

       

       

       

      Has anyone else run accross this?

       

      any ideas on how to fix or work around?

       

       

      PS: tried the file on multiple machines with same results.

       

      thanks

          This isn't terribly surprising. The text engine usually changes from version to version so text flow won't be exactly the same. When you open an old file in a new version, though, ID will not recompose the story until you actually try to work with it in some way, hence the change when you altered the frame.
