    Why are my tools and other options grayed out?

      I've been using InDesign for the past hour, mostly just pasting text into my InDesign doc and formatting it. All of a sudden, I can't click the 'selection tool', nor any other tools except for the 'type tool'.


      I notice my cursor is stuck in a text mode of the sorts, meaning I can only place text boxes.


      Why did this happen and what can I do to fix it? Is inDesign known for being buggy and/or counterintuitive? Just hoping weird issues like this don't keep popping up.
