    Notes panel puts box character at start of every line

    Fritz Hansen Level 1

      When I type a Note in the text area of the Notes panel, there is a little box with an X in it at the start of every line, and it obscures the first letter of the line. The Notes text field is empty at first, but the box appears as soon as I click on the New Note button. The box appears to the right of the cursor, but doesn't move, so when I type a note, it covers the first letter. And a similar box occurs every time the text wraps to a new line.


      I think this may have happened once before but I don't recall if it went away or if I did something like delete some preference files. Can anyone help me get rid of the Xboxes? I've tried restarting InDesign and the computer. No luck.
