I'm not sure if I've done something to my indesign (still new and studying at uni), but I'm unable to move anything at all on my page in indesign. If I create a text box, shape, line, anything at all, I cannot click and drag it. I can move it with the arrow keys, and I can still resize with my mouse.
Yesterday I had the issue that I could not move pages in my pages panel. As in I cannot click and drag a page to move it. I gave up and closed my computer down so I'm not sure if the moving shapes is the same issue as the moving pages as I cannot do either.
I have updated and re-installed Indesign thinking it was perhaps a glitch. And I've reset all preferences upon start up. Nothing has worked.
A couple of things regarding moving shapes. Confirm you are using the Selection Tool (the top arrow). When you draw a frame, let's say a rectangular graphic frame, then you switch to the Selection Tool and mouse over the recatangle, your cursor should have a black dot underneath it. When you click the rectangle, is it selected? When selected, the cursor should have a small frame under it. Similar behavior should occur when you draw a line.
Thanks for your help. I was using the selection tool.
After making my post I actually re-started and updated my computer. This seems to have fixed the issue!! I just wish I thought to do that earlier instead of playing around with it for 2 days!
I hate when that happens. 😊
