      My text box is frozen and has a dotted line around it, how do I get the cursor into it? I'm working in Indesign CS3, I drew up an A4 page with a single text box and keyed a lot of text into it. At the end, I brought a JPEG into the page. Now they both have a fine dotted line around them and appear 'frozen'. I've not seen the dotted line instead of the usual text box line before.

      Points: The text box isn't locked, the layer isn't locked. Nothing on the page goes live with Command-A to select.

      It's happened between Time Machine backups so I can't restore.

      All I need are the captured keystrokes.

      What may have happened, when placing the JPEG, I may have moved the file's folder, out of a larger folder, onto the Desktop, then placed the JPEG.

       

      Re-opening Indesign didn't work; restarting didn't work.

       

      All solutions appreciated.
