    Can't copy text from InDesign to other applications

    QuoinDesign

      Hi there,

       

      Whenever I try to copy text from InDesign to any other applications, it simply fails. When I get to my text editor, email program, Illustrator or Photoshop, it's like the clipboard is empty.

       

      I'm able to copy shapes and other objects, though. I can also copy entire text boxes, but if I'm copying to Illustrator, for instance, all the lines of text are separated. It's treated as an object and is pretty useless for typical formatting needs.

       

      I'm on Mac OS X Mountain Lion, using InDesign CS5.

       

      Can anyone help?

       

      Thanks!
