I'm having issues with InDesign 2022. My current problem is the page tool is selected and I can't un-select it. I wasn't even using the tool when this happened. I've tried restarting InDesign as well as my computer and it's still stuck.
Thank you both for your replies. I tried this and it didnt' fix the issue. However, I then realized it was limited to just a couple of pages that I added to the document. I deleted those, and am hoping the issue will resolve itself.
If Diane Burns' suggestion to rebuild your preferences does not work then you could also try trashing your InDesign cache files. This process can fix issues within the interface.
To do so:
For Macintosh Users: The User Library folder in which InDesign’s cache files are stored is hidden by default on most Macintoshes. To access it make sure that InDesign is closed and click on the desktop to launch a Finder Window (Command-N). With this window in column view follow the path User>Home folder (it’s the folder with an icon that looks like a house—it may have the user’s name rather than “Home”) and click on the Home folder. With the Option Key pressed choose Library from the Finder Go Menu. “Library” will now appear within the Home folder. Within the Library folder find the “Caches” folder. Within the Caches folder find and delete the entire folder “Adobe InDesign”. I find that deleting the InDesign cache folder completely leads to a lasting change.
For Windows Users: On Windows 7 and above the caches files are hidden. To find them go to the Control Panel and open Folder Options and then click the View tab. Then select “Show hidden files and folders” or “Show hidden files, folders or drive options” in Advanced Settings. Then delete (or rename) the folder at the end of this path: C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Local\Adobe\InDesign\Version [#]\<Language>\Cache.
