    Can't write inside of shapes on certain document

    reindeer4 Level 1

      I'm using In Design CC 2017.

      Have a 100 plus page document and wanted to place some text within a custom shape over an image - and after tinkering for a while, found I couldn't put any text inside any shapes.

       

      If I open a new document, everything works fine.

      And I can create a shape, fill it with text, copy from new doc and paste into my longer document and ahve things work.

       

      But I'm trying to figure out why it's not working right in the first place.

       

      Any suggestions of common problems I should look for?

       

      Have looked at layer order and making sure nothing is locked.  But I can't even get it to work on a blank page with a regular ellipse or rectangle - so I'm guessing I must have messed up some setting.

       

      Thanks for any suggestions.
