I have no text showing up all of sudden in new documents. I can create a text box but nothing will show up in it. I know that it is not hidden by any other layers and the text color and size are correct. Any other reasons it woulnd't show up???? Using a Mac with OS X 10.9 and updated Indesign software
What version do you use?
Did you try to export as IDML?
Do you have any overflow indicator?
Did you have a look into the Preflight Panel, if anything is indicated?
