Is it locked? On a different master upon which this one is based? A variable?
There is no reason for it to have been locked so I suspect not. I'm in the Junior designer role - Senior one on a long holiday.
is there an easy way to find out if the text frame is locked?
Thank you. Rufus
Open the Layers panel...
Thank you Peter
That has sorted it!
I think my exasperation got the better of me.
I think a blindness not believing someone would have locked a document we always update throughout didn't help! so I wasn't looking to unlock.
Also the layers (red and blue) didn't appear to Me to have any association with a footer text frame.
A Homer 'Doh'!
Thanks so much for your rapid help Peter
Have a good day and weekend
