Can someone tell me what this little icon on the left side of the text box in the screenshot below is? I've been trying to google it with no luck and I'm not sure what to do to turn it off so my text doesn't go haywire. I copied the text box from an INDD document where the text worked fine, then pasted in a pre-existing INDD document and when I go to move the text box around the text starts aligning left, right and center on it's own.
It looks like you pasted the frame on a Master page. That icon appears on text frames that reside on a Master.
Not sure what the erratic alignment behavior is though; perhaps something else on the page has text wrap applied...(?)
Well I discovered an empty text box with a wrap applied to it behind my new text box. Once that empty text box was deleted it solved the issue. Thanks for the response!
