In my previous version of InDesign, the black arrow selected the box for moving, resizing, etc.; the white arrow would let me select the image for moving and resizing within the box.
In ID CS6, the black arrow sometimes selects the box, but sometimes (and certainly more often than I'd wish), it selects the image instead of the box. (Why?)
If I click on the outside of the box, the black arrow will select it, but that is not always an easy thing to do. I would prefer that the black arrow work the way it used to. I could not find anything in the preferences dialog box about it. Did I miss it?
Are you clicking on the Content Grabber (looks like a donut) in the middle of the frame? If so, and you'd like not to have it active you can turn it off under View > Extras >.
I might be. I have been unsure about that thing that pops up...
Is that what makes it grab the image?
Yes - that fixed it! Thanks.
