i recently loaded up an old file (i use as a template) to make some changes for a proposal only to discover that i cannot place ANY image into it.
none of the layers are locked and the files are all normal types (PNG, JPG, TIFF, etc).
i'm not even able to draw a frame box to dump an image into.
i've also tried creating a new file (assuming the file was corrupt or had a locked layer i couldn't identify), but still no luck.
even tho i'm given the "drop preview cursor" normally associated with placing an image, the cursor seems to appear as a normal one would....meaning...if i click and drag it will select other elements, it rolls over, on the screen. when i release, nothing happens.
i am running the latest update of InDesign CC 2015 (v.188.8.131.52), tho i had the same issue (moments ago) when i was running the version released just prior.
27" iMac running the latest version of OS X, El Capitan.
anyone else have any ideas? HELP!
i've even attached a video for reference...
i should note that i've also attempted to generate & place a QR code (withing ID), but cannot place that either...
