I recently needed to paste some text from Word into an existing InDesign document (I usually place text, but decided to paste as I was only making small changes to an existing document). When I pasted the text, a dashed text thread appeared from the text box, which seemed to be coming from behind one of the other text boxes. I was also unable to click on or highlight any of the text I had just pasted in.
Has anyone encountered this problem before or have any ideas on what went wrong?
Version of InDesign? Operating system?
Can you return to your thread in forum so you can attach a screen capture of what you're seeing, please. Use the "camera" icon in the edit window.
Maybe an anchored item?
Thanks both for your response. The document froze so I closed it down and started again. If this occurs again I will take a photo and post.
