Sorry about posting my question twice, that was not intended. Thanks for your answer
About the issue with my pointer, I should have specified that I have already tried to replace my Preference. When that did not work, I uninstalled and reinstalled the App but I am still having this issue.
The odd thing is that, using the Page Tool or Type Tool, the pointer will change accordingly, I only seem to have issue with the loaded icons.
Because I am only just starting to use Indesign, I am starting to wonder if maybe the issue doesn't lie with InDesign but maybe with some other configuration on my Mac. Regardless... Have you ever encounter this issue and do you know of anything else I could try to fix this so that I can see the Loaded Graphics Icon when placing images (I'm a photographer and the reason I want to get proficient with InDesign is to be able to create better customized photobooks - hence why I'd really like to see the loaded icon)
Try with a new user account on the Mac and after starting the Mac with the Shift key held down. If it works in a new user, it's a user problem, if it works with the shift key down it's a software conflict, and if it continues to fail it's either a program problem, a third party plugin problem, or some other conflict with softhearted that runs even when starting with the shift key down.
