Hello! I am having issues with selecting text in my indesign. I use the cloud version have unistalled, reinstalled, reset preferences, etc...
When i start selecting from either direction it doesnt select it all correctly.. for example the screen shot attached I started selecting on the word WYOMING starting with the G, when i lifed my finger on mouse it only selected what is in purple... any suggestions what is happening?
In the meantime, can you use the keyboard to make the selection? Click on the G in Wyoming and use Shift+arrow key to highlight what you want to modify? Or select using Story Editor?
Hi Barb, using 17.0.1, Macbook Pro running in OS Montery. I use Indesign from creative cloud.
This is what I tried, and many restarting of the computer.
IReset InDesign Preferences – hold down Shift+Option+Command+Controlwhile starting InDesign, click “Yes” to delete preference files. ... Seemed like various things had been tried by people, but the one that had the most success was to reset the InDesign preferences.
I also have an issue with naming files. When i start typing the file name i want it saved as (and this is for any and all files) the file type is added again automitically and i have to rename.
It may be helpful to give us more information: Are you new to using InDesign? Please tell us what operating system (exactly) you're running. Please tell us (exactly) what InDesign version you're using. Does this only happen with one InDesign file, or with every file you try?
Hi Steve, please see above. I am not new to IND. It seems to happen in indesign only.
That is just the first step in resetting preferences. Try working to the end of this post and let us know if it makes a difference.
Sorry about the trouble. I would like to know if the steps suggested in the third-party help article shared above by @Barb Binder help resolve the issue? If not, I would request you to share a few more details like:
I will be looking forward to your response.
Thanks & Regards,
