    Can't move Indesign frames

    M. Slingerland

      I am having a problem with InDesign 6 and/or Indesign CC. I cant move my text- and picture frames. Nothing seems to help. If I do a restart I am able to move objects for a short time. After a time though it no longer functions.

      This is since one month. It seems like it has something to do with Windows Aniversary Update 1607. The machine is updated to the latest version.


      Already tries to:

      - Trash/replace my Indesign preferences and cache as descriped in https://forums.adobe.com/thread/526990

      - Disabled antivirus software.

      - Tried both versions Indesign CS6 and Indesign CC. Both versions have the same problem.

      - I'am not using any browser plugins like Pusbullet etc.


      Any help/suggestions would be appreciated!

          Hi there

          I heard a lot about this issue but have never experienced it since... 15 minutes ago (I use CS6)...

          It occurred after an INDD crash, while reopening file and affected only some pages.

          I eventually managed to go over it by duplicating the affected pages. The duplicates pages were fine...

          Maybe you can it a try...
