Even with free transform tool?
Indesign version & Mac OS?
No that works fine....just Selection Tool - Shift-Alt-Cmd that doesn't.....and the drag and duplicate doesn't either.
Often third-party software can interfere with keystrokes.
To test, restart your computer. With no other software running, run InDesign and try again.
Typically, browser plug-ins can be the culprit.
Aha that seems to have fixed it....oh boy, I've been struggling with that all day, made a job take far longer than it should have haha.
Thanks for the prompt help, Steve and Salah!
