I am running InDesign CS6. When I select the type tool and the control panel pops up the options switched places. The Character tools used to be on the left while the Paragraph ones were on the right... now it is the opposite and it is very irritating. I have no idea how to switch it back. I have tried resetting and just quitting the program and it stays the same. I have attached a screenshot.
That is absolutely normal: if you select the character icon (A), the character attributes are on the left, then the paragraph attributes. if you select the paragraph icon, the infos will switch.
And now I feel like a doofus! Thanks!!!
