All the tools in the menu along the top are grayed out. They are unworkable. Also when I initially open Indesign 3, the title page opens but lacks the green and red button on the upper left corner and seems disabled. I reinstalled Indesign 3 and thought the problems were solved. They were not! Any suggestions? Are the 2 problems connected?
Turn off your connection to the internet, restart ID and in the ensuing dialog, set register to never.
