I did something to my InDesign and now every time I place a graphic file (EPS, PNG), it seems to want two clicks; one to place the file, and another click that seems to place a piece of pink text that contains the name of my file. I'm thinking maybe I accidentally turn on some setting that makes this behavior? It is very annoying and I want it to go away.

 

This happens regardless of whether I'm doing drag-and-drop or Ctrl-D.

Does the text actually create a frame that you then have to delete? Possible to provide a screen grab?
