Double click on a corner handle or a side handle. It doesn't work to double click on the frame itself or on the inport or outport handles.

I assume Melane did it correctly before, and if it has stopped working now, please reset Preferences (Hold Ctrl/Cmd+Alt+Shift while opening ID). Have you updated lately? Which numerical versión of ID are you using now?*

 

* select About InDesign command in the Help menu (Win) or InDesign one (Mac)

Yeah, you're right. :3 I'm curretly using the last versin I guess "14.0.3". I didn't want to reset preferences, since I use Indesign on my own way, but I think this will be my best try. :[ Thanks!

I've tried it and even so didn't work. 😞 Right now I've checked and the only one that doesn't work is when I click at the bottom handle. By the way, I'll keep trying to find the anwser.

Thank you Maiane for posting this, I too have the same issue, however it sometimes works if I resize the box and try again. A work-around but an annoying and time consuming one though!

Hi Maiane:

 

Ctrl+Alt+C (Cmd+Opt+C on a Mac) will do the same thing as double-clicking the bottom middle handle. Also, if there is a guide bisecting the bottom middle handle, sometimes that gets in the way.

 

As a general rule, when InDesign starts behaving erratically, that indicates it is time to rebuild the preference and cache. I know you said you tried resetting prefs with the keyboard and that didn't work. Here is a post that outlines rebuild these files, and goes beyond that basic step. I would suspect one of the steps listed here will take care of this for you:

Hi Maiane,

 

Sorry about this. I am hopeful that the issue is resolved by now. If not, I would request if you can share a few more details like:

  • Operating System (exact version of Windows/ MAC)
  • Is the issue related to a specific document(s)/asset(s)? If yes, could you please share the document(s)/asset(s) with us? You can upload it to the creative cloud and share the download link.
  • When did this start happening? Are there any recent changes made to your system? For example, any antivirus, system updates or web extensions installed recently.

 

Looking forward to your response!

 

Regards,

Srishti

Hi! Sorry for the late awnser, my week was really busy.

About your question:

 

  • I'm using Windows 10 Home, version 1809, installation date march 19th.
  • As far as I could check it happens just in one page of one document. This a support document that I normally creat to do all images from a book in another file, then I just paste at the original file within the rest of the book. In this document  the problem happens just at the first page. If you click at any text box at the first page, the ctrl + alt + c command won't work, also there are these four side handles, if you click at any side or top handle it will resize normally, but, once you click at the bottom one (which is the one I use most in these cases) it doesn't resize to fit the text. The file I'm working is this one: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9eod9e90k5qndl4/imagens.indd?dl=0
  • I didn't have a chance to test in another computer with indesign. 😞
  • As far as I remember I didn't install any other program at the computer lately. 

 

Thank you so much for your help. 🙂
