Are you sure you don’t have the text tool selected? Do you have some third party plug in that changes a single click to a double click?
Finally, are you fully patched to 7.0.4?
Bob, Thank you for your quick reply.
• I checked, I have CS5, 7.0.4
• I have not purchased any 3rd party plug-in for InDesign.
• I select the Text Frame with the Selection Tool, (black arrow icon).
One click and the Selection Tool switches to the Text Tool 95% of the time.
I have a gazillion text frames to move.
I really need to get this issue resolved.
I am working on a Mac, 10.5.8
As silly as it may sound, try a different mouse.
There is a preference to keep the selection from converting an empty frame to a text frame but these are already text frames.
Pure Genius Mr. Bob!
I changed my mouse. That did the trick.
Yes, the other day, I did try the Preference thing. So I knew that was not the problem.
A gazillion thank you.
