I've tried looking at forums for this issue and nothing is helping. I am working on a brochure for my company. I was typing in text boxes, no problem. All of a sudden, I try to create a new text box and it automatically goes to right alignment. I change it. I start typing a sentence, no problem. The second I go to add a period it moves to the front of the line.
I even try tricking it by putting a period in between letters and deleting the letter after but then it still moves to the front. I'm not sure what I did that could have messed with the settings because it was going smoothly until now. I've tried so far just duplicating other texts boxes that work but I don't understand why this is happening. I feel like it should be a simple fix but haven't found anything to help.
Has anyone else had this issue in InDesign?

You may have, unintended, changed the Adobe Paragraph Composer to World Ready, set it back to Single line or Normal Paragraph composer.
Thank you!! That actually helped! I knew it was a simple answer. I think it happened when I tried to insert a place holder text and it was Arabic.
and where do I find that???
You can click on the 4-line icon (Options) in the corner of the 'Paragraph' window.
You'll then see a few options, among them is Adobe Single-line Composer.
Hope this helps.
