Thank you, Barb. That seems to have fixed it. Although no matter how fast-fingered I was, I could not get the preferences dialogue box to open when opening indesign. Instead, I had to delete the files manually. Deleting preferences seems to be a catch-all for any sudden quirks with the program. I will keep this in mind.

We can go years without any issues with the preferences files and then suddenly things start acting wonky.
When I start thinking "Why has this behavior changed—should uninstall/reinstall?", then deleting preferences is the answer.
Glad you are back on track!
Thank you!!!! I thought I was going crazy with this problem!
