I am relatively new to indesign and still figuring out the program. I am having a problem in cutting a pasting a text box onto another page in the same document. I cut or copy the text box from one page and want to paste onto a different page on the same document. When I go to the other page and try to paste the paste option is unavailable from the drop down box or if I hit ctrl+v nothing happens. I have tried opening a text box and pasting into it or clicking on the page and am unable to do it. It seems like I am missing something simple, can someone please help?
Please tell us your operating system and version, and the patch level for InDesign. Also, do you have any third-party plugins installed?
What you are expereincing is abnormal, but there are a lot of things that could be causing it, so for the moment we would only be playing a guessing game. More information will help narrow down the possibilities. If You are not at InDesign version 6.0.5 or higher, though, run the updater as the first step.
Okay, this was not an indesign problem, it was happening in all of my other applications. A simple reboot fixed the problem, thank you for your time.
If its the same problem i have from time to time closing Acrobat solves the problem. You can then restart Acrobat.
