Check the photo for a text wrap and look at the text for no break attributes.
There's no text wraps, and I can't even SEE the text. As I said, I tried typing something from scratch when cut-and-paste didn't work, and it doesn't even show up.
I guess it would help if I had the colors turned on for the text.
Jeezum H. Crow...I can't take much more of this...
sorry to bother you guys over something so stupid. This program is just so complicated, and I'm under the gun and so frazzled I can't even see the obvious.
Could be a right or left indent pushing your text narrower than your column width. Put your text in a big text frame without setting any extra columns, just one big box. Does the text start at the left edge of the frame; do lines wrap when they get near the right edge of it? Or are they starting and/or ending far away from the edges of the frame?
It's not an indent problem at all. What seems to be happening is two things:
1. When I make a new text frame, it automatically sets itself for two columns. I have no idea how that happened.
2. The "Swap fill and stroke" command keeps resetting itself to "none." I may have inadvertently causd this earlier, when I tried to remove a stroke I had around text in a headline.
Is there any way to reset both of these things to where they are ordinarily?
Make sure nothing is selected and reset the number of columns in text frame options, then select the text tool and reset the stroke and fill.
Will do, Peter. Thank you!
