    CS5 ID- Text in frame keeps offsetting


      I am fairly new to the InDesign game, so forgive me if this seems like an odd question. When I draw text frames inside my documents, no matter how big I make them, text immediately "offsets" when I hit the enter/return button to go to a new line. For example, I am designing a business card. I draw a box for my address, big enough to accommodate several lines. But as soon as I push enter to go to the next line or type past the box border, text disappears and the red "error" button at on the status bar pops up indicating the offset. I then have to play this game where I resize the box, try putting the cursor in another spot, etc. It's as if the frame is only usable for the first line or so.


      Is there some setting that can fix this?
