Is there any way to make the microscopic clickable areas in indesign easier to click? I'm not disabled though I probably soon will be because I produce 20-30 tabloid pages a day with this program and I'm sure I click at least five times for every one-click result. I just spent five minutes clicking the little X which indicates text overflow. Over over again the text box expanded to a greater width, or duplicated the entire box, or did nothing. I'm absolutely furious at the level of laziness of the designers of this program. I don't remember Quark being anywhere near this bad. Surely there must be at least some people out there who have the same trouble as me. We probably all think it's just unavoidable but it shouldn't be. I, for one, am not going to suffer repetitive strain injuries just to make this program work. I'm not talking about one single clickable area, I'm talking about every single clickable part of this program except dialog boxes. If Adobe wants me to make a desktop video I will but it will be 20 hours long.

Hi @Stu5E7D: A new version of InDesign was released this morning. It's version 17 or InDesign 2022. It has an option in preferences that will allow you to make the anchor points, handles and bounding box display size larger. In addition, if you have a high-res display, you can scale up the UI.  ~ Barb

That sounds fantastic! Can I get this thru Creative Cloud? I just updated, but I've still only got V 16.4

Yes. Adobe rolls out the upgrades regionally, so check back again later today or tomorrow. It's awesome for those of us with aging eyes. 😊
