I'm new to Indesign software and need to edit a workbook created in Indesign by my graphic designer. The document is 98 pages long and on the first 2 pages I can edit text using the i-bar text tool. Yet, when I click on text tool to edit the rest of the pages, the i-bar gets a box around it (like to create a new text frame) and it won't allow me to edit the text. I've checked if layers were marked - nothing obvious. Any ideas on how to fix this without having to annoy my graphic designer with this (she's on maternity leave).
First Select Text Tool then hold Ctrl key on (Windows) Command on (Mac) the text tool switch to Selection Tool, click on the text frame to select it then release the Ctrl key from here you can double click with text tool on the text frame to edit your text.
Did you expand the layers to see if the text frame was locked? Is it perhaps on the master page?
Hi Salah and Peter ... I appreciate your responses and so quick ... yeap, I'm starting to see what you were both saying - it's very helpful thanks so much.
