my InDesign was working fine. finished up a file. opened up a different file, but when I pasted in a graphic, I realized that I couldn't move it. went back to the first file I had been in and I was no longer able to move anything there either! I updated to InDesign 2017. i'm on a windows 10 os. thanks for any feed back.
i did and that did not work.
I'm experiencing the same problem but on a Mac.
Fortunately I figured it out just restart your computer, let me know if it works.
yes. sorry I should've responded sooner. I shut down the computer, not just logon/logoff and gave the computer a rest for the night. came back the following morning and all was well. thank you!
Could anyone resolve this on a mac? I'm now experiencing this. I've reinstalled indesign, deleted cache preferences, called Adobe tech support which said it's a user issue and I'll have to go to Mac, so then I totally reformatted my hard drive reinstalled the os x . I then opened up Indesign and the issue is STILL THERE.
Have you tried to export a IDML file and to open this again in the same InDesign?
I haven't because it does it with multiple files. Should I still try that?
Hm, so it shines that it is more an Id problem that a problem of the file itself. But please, try it.
And you are sure that you don't have locked the layer or the objects itself?
No layers are locked. I tried the export. The issue remains 😕 I've been through 3 chat sessions with Adobe Indesign tech support as well. It keeps going back to not moving.
Is this still the case?
Do you have this behavior on every machine/every installation of InDesign?
Are you on Mac 10.12.4, if yes, please try turning off GPU performance in Preferences dialog:
I have the same issue but my GPU Performance have all along been turned off.
Reset Indesign Preference, this will solve the problem
Start InDesign, and then press Shift+Ctrl+Alt. pop up will come
Click Yes when asked if you want to delete preference files.
