I'm a student in the university of anchorage Alaska system.
I am studying adobe inDesign cs6 with the classroom in a book, I am going through the book and have run head long into a problem.
when mastering pages and I try to drag and drop the mastered page icon onto the documents pages icon the little hand lets go when I move my mouse,
likewise when I drag and drop a documents page icon to another documents icon the hand lets go when I move my mouse.
I've restarted saved and recreated my documents nothing seems to fix the problem
I am running a hp pavilion AMD A10-5750M APU with a Radeon HD graphics card running at 2.5ghz,
I have 8gb ram 64bit op X64 based processor, I have a 750gb drive with over 60% free space
I believe my system can handle CS6
Which operating system?
It's normal for the hand icon to disappear while you are dragging over the Master Pages portion of the panel, but it should reappear once you are over the Document Pages area.
win 8.1 up-to-date as of 2-5-2015
My problem was that when I would grab and drag the mastered page icon inside the pages panel, then hover over the document page icon that I wanted to apply the mastering too.
It did not show the hand with the master icon nor did the border turn dark, waiting the drop to apply the master format, the hand turned into the pointer.
I followed a suggestion to 'remove-restart-re install-restart' viola it works now!
Unknown issue with the first install
