    Why are my tools and other options grayed out?

    BenignBaboon

      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.
