    Trouble with text box

    nyodice

      I downloaded the free trial of indesign in attempt to create some layouts.  I am having trouble with the text box function.  I can only create a text box in limited places on the spread.  When I attempt to type in it I am prompted with an expand the text button.  I can create a text box outside of the spread, but when I try to drag it into the spread the text disappears.  All of my layout is organized under 1 layer.  I attempted to create the text box in this layer as well as in a new layer above it with no success.  Any suggestions?
