    CS5 Greyed out input fields in InDesign


      I've run into a similiar problem as stated here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/5212634


      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.


      I'm on OS 10.6. I've followed the discussion thread of the previous post and I was at the step of creating a different user to see if the problem persisted in a new account. In my case the same problem persisted. Can anyone advise how to proceed?


      I have accidentally deleted system fonts but I have used Pacifist to replace the default fonts.
