I've been using Adobe InDesign forever. Lately it's been VERY flakey (possibly due to the OS El Capitan)...
Here's the latest problem. I'm working on a page with text boxes and photos placed. For some reason all the text boxes on the page are 'frozen' there. It's like they're locked but they really aren't. Running the cursor overtop of these elements acts like they aren't even there.
If I right-click, then 'select' and 'first object above', the text box becomes clickable again. Then to get it "back to normal" I have to cut the text box, then paste and it's fine again.
Does anyone have any idea what could cause this and how I fix it? It's quickly becoming a real pain in the... neck.
I've been working on the same 40 page document for a week and this is the first trouble I'm having.
Version of InDesign?
I don't know what's going on, but over the course of the week, have you been doing any Save As operations? Save As clears out old change information that becomes inaccessible file bloat after the file is closed and that can lead to file corruption. Running the file through IDML might help at this point: Remove minor corruption by exporting
There have been countless problems reported with El Capitan. Search the forum and you'll find disappearing text among them.
