I'm having this problem for over a year...No matter if the object is grouped or just a simple text frame, it always turns into a photo when I paste it to other pages or do paste in place. Clear Indesign preference not working for me 😞

Hi @coye ,

could you share a simple sample document with us where this happens?

Just attach it to a reply using the forum's editor.

 

Thanks,

I don't have a sample document but it's just a text frame with the word "APPT", and when I copy and paste/ paste in place the text frame to the second page, it becomes a photo, not a text frame that is editable. If I group a text frame and a photo and then copy and paste/ paste in place to the second page, it also becomes a photo. Hope this makes sense.

Will duplicating the frame help?

Select the text frame, hold the Alt key and move the selected frane somewhere else.

E.g. to a different spread.

 

And please provide a sample document.

Perhaps there is something wrong with the document itself?
I'd like to do a test with your document.

Is this happening with just the text frame shown? Does it happen with any other text frames? Is what you're showing just a simple text frame with live text or is there some other origin of the frame in question? Assuming it's just a normal text frame, what happens if you recreate it in another document? Also what version of InDesign and what operating system are you using?
