I am creating a booklet for a client where I place a Microsoft Word document into a text box and then format the text. I have done this same process countless times in the past, but this time as I'm in the middle of cut/pasting and formatting the text, all of my text frames lock up. I cut text out of the text frame with the placed text and I can no longer select anything. It basically acts like the frames are locked, but they are not. If I change to the selection tool after I cut the text and try to click and drag to select a frame, I notice that pulling up the Edit drop-down menu, I have the option to Undo Move Item, but I'm not seeing that I have moved anything.
I am using InDesign CC version 9.1 on my iMac Mid 2010 running OS X 10.9.1. I have quit InDesign and started it back up again, I also tried deleting the Cache and Preferences folders (after quiting InDesign and starting it back up again), I have also shut down my computer and started it back up again. None of these fixed the problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
I'm still not sure what was causing the issue, but I ended up placing the document again in a new text frame without changing the size the text after importing, and I didn't have the problem when I got to the same spot I was having the issue.
I'm having this problem right now!
