    Greyed out input fields in InDesign

    Mioux61

      First, some information: I'm running Adobe CS6 on Mac OSX 10.8.3.

       

      Recently, InDesign stopped displaying the menu fields for any sort of input within the application. For example, when creating a document, I can't input a width or height or page numbers. Inside a document, I can't change the font size or type. Even when exporting as a PDF, the prompt box's won't allow me to change any of the fields.

      I've restarted InDesign and my computer, and after that didn't work, I reinstalled the application, but the problem still remains. I don't know what to fix or what is even broken. I've never heard of this problem happening to anyone, and from searching around on the web, it seems pretty rare.

       

      Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
