    Moving selected objects up and down with keyboard is automaticly applying a colour fill.

      Hi,

       

      My InDesign is strangely applying a colour fill when i move an objects up or down using the directional arrow in my keyboard. If the colour pallet is open. Nudging an object up makes the pallet disappear on the first press. It then reappears on the second press while filling the object (text frame) with black. This is instensly frustrating. How can I stop this? Suggestions would be very appreciated.

       

      I have already reset the preferences.

       

      Cheers,

          I have to ask if you reset the prefs uing one of the methods in this thread: Replace Your Preferences

           

          If not, there's a good chance you left out one of the files, so please try again using one of the listed methods. And please tell us the OS and your version of ID, including the patch level.

           

          Obviously this is not normal behavior. It sounds as if the Swatches panel has focus when you are pressing the arrow keys.

            Thanks for your reply.

            I fixed the problem by replacing the keyboard!
