Are there any settings in InDesign preferences or anywhere else that might prohibit word wrap from working in a document. The word wrap functions in a design file I'm working on are not working, but when I do the same steps in a new blank document it works fine.
Off the top of my head:
1. No Break set as a default text attribute.
2. Unbreakable long words and hyphenation switched off.
3. A font so large, and a text frame so narrow, that poor ID cannot find a valid breaking point in the very first word.
Thanks. Turned out there is an actual "Ignore Text Wrap" option. Took me a bit to find.
