I've branched this off to it's own thread and re-titled it in hopes it will attract more attention.
I'm not sure what to try next either, and it doesn't help that I'm a Windows user. Is it happening in other documents too? If not, see Remove minor corruption by exporting. If it is, can you make a sample file and put it on dropbox or similar and give us a link?
Thank you. It seems to be happening in any and all files even files from external templates. I have tried numerous "New Files" and just to check I pull an InDesign Template of a working file and tried. All with the same result, my grab hand does not change to a curser, the underlying graphic does not become transparent, I cannot move the graphic in the frame (Even though it is bigger). After I have place the frame on a page, I cannot move the frame when I have it selected unless I use the transform function or the arrows on my keyboard.
I can use the buttons at the top right to do things like center content, fit content to frame, fit frame to content, fit content proportionally. I am happy to export a file and place it somewhere you can access it.
Thank you again for your response.
Please post a link to a sample file, and also try the tool after logging onto your Mac using a new user account.
