This problem acured just now for the first time. Also after closing down, and restarting my INDD.
- Adobe Indesign 2022, version 220.127.116.11
- Operating system: MacOS Monterey, version 12.6
Hope you can help;)
Sorry for the trouble. Could you please update InDesign to the current version, i.e, ID 18, and let us know if the problem still exists?

Problems within the interface can often be fixed by trashing your InDesign cache files (which is not the same as trashing preferences).
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.
Thanks Bill. I hope it stays fixed for a litle while. I am working on a 32 page calendar right now and don't need any delays.
Happy to help.
Thank you for this little gem! I just had this exact situation happen to me out of the blue. Your solution worked immediately.
