A newly created file, by me, is now seemingly unable to have the text edited. All font options become 'greyed out' when I highlight the text I want to edit. This has been happening to me all day with various indesign files.
I did get a new computer with a fresh install last Thursday, and it seems if I quit inDesign and re-open it, on occasion it let's me edit the text.. so I am wondering if, but hoping not, I need a new installation after a clean uninstall?
I am on a mac running OS X Mavericks, using InDesign CS6 with Creative Cloud. (I can't upgrade to CC at the moment because of the database management system we use, Agility, needing to update their indesign plug-in prior to us being able to update to InDesign CC.)
Someone please help with this.
Did you migrate ID or install it clean from the original installers? If you migrated, then you need to uninstall and install clean.
I did a clean install from the install file downloaded from Creative Cloud, just prior to installing.
I think i've solved the issue, as it was a plug-in related issue. I removed the plug-in and was able to edit freely. I will contact the 3rd party and alert them of the issue.
