I'm editing a document already created in CS5. I want to move some text boxes around, but when I drag them off the design page and into the gray area (for lack of a better name) the text dissapears. The text is black, so it should be visible. As soon as I click something else, that text box basically disappears, rendering my usage of the side area basically useless.
I assume this is a preference setting, but I can't find it.
Gray area? Sounds like you're in preview mode. With nothing selected hit the w key.
I probably am in preview mode. I was messing around trying to find a view that was easier to use. The file I opened had all the guides and lines and such turned on, made it really hard to see.
