    Text Variables Not Showing Up When Inserted

      Adobe InDesign CS4 6.0.6

       

      I'm working on a membership directory that should be relatively simple. I'm at the stage of creating a template for a Master Page that will have members alphabetically. There are two problems I've come across.

       

      1. When defining a Running Header (Paragraph Style), the drop down menu for 'Styles' is empty. I'd like to use a 'Product Header' setting. I don't know if this is a plug in issue or I'm just doing something wrong.

       

      2. When inserting a Text Varible (I made due with the preset styling) the text box is empty.

       

      I've already reset my preferences and I don't know what else to do. PLEASE HELP!
