I'm making a card in InDesign & I'm having an issue with moving objects. I have some text in a rectangle & they always move together. I want to keep the two separate so I can move the text within the rectangle. I've tried using the Direct Selection Tool & even put the two on different layers but nothing seems to be working. Can you please help me?
Sounds like you have a single text frame object with a colored fill.
You can either use two objects, one for background, one for fill, or you can go to the Text Frame Options dialog and adjust insets and vertical alignment to shift the text within the frame. The first is probably easier.
Thank you. That'll work for me!
