After a rebuild of my laptop (Windows 7), InDesign no longer allows me to change the format of text. Black is the only color allowed, and it won't even allow me to access the character formatting controls. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling using cc cleaner with no success. InDesign worked ok before the rebuild, but I assume something went wrong during installation. The product is basically unusable. I'm despirate for any help.
Did you set the operating system to large fonts? If so, set it back or turn off aero theme.
