I'm having trouble with text formatting. I have a document in which I can't format text at all if the entire box is selected; all formatting menus are grayed out. (I can format text if individual lines are highlighted using the cursor.) I've tried resetting preferences and resaving the document using IDML. If it matters, I'm using OSX Mavericks, iD CS6, and the Suitcase Fusion extension. Can anyone help?
Are selecting the text, or the frame? If the latter, you can only format text when selecting the frame if it isn't threaded to other frames. For the former, turn off suitcase, to start, and if that doesn't change things see Replace Your Preferences
