I am trying to apply styles, both paragraph and character, and they are not active. I can't click on them and get anything at all. I've used older versions of InDesign so I know how to do it, but with CS5.5 installed new on my Windows 7 computer, they don't work. What is especially frustrating is when I first installed a trial version they worked for awhile and then stopped. I cleared my system, got the installation CD in the meantime and loaded it fresh with no success.
Anyone who can help would be much appreciated.
Oh, you truly are a genius!!!! That was the problem. I knew it had to be something simple but for the life of me I never would have figured that out. In between I'd gotten a new wide screen monitor and had adjusted the font size. I can't thank you enough for taking the time to help me!!!! All the best to you.
