Cannot edit a locked text frame.

I have an entire book that somehow the text has been locked. I can move the frames but I cannot edit the text within the frames. The text is NOT in a master frame. I spent three hours with an Adobe expert, including screen sharing. In the end, I uploaded the file to Adobe but have heard nothing. I don't know what happened but this is a 300+ page book. I'm at a real loss and apparently so are the Adobe experts. A page snapshot is included. HELP!

It's an InCopy story. And whoever you were talking to is no expert if they didn't know that.

You should see a tool tip when hovering over the frame. If you're not using InCopy, go to the Assignments panel and just delete the InCopy stories.

Actually, there are links to the InCopy story. By deleting the links it freed up the text.
