I'm using InDesign 16.1 x64 on a Windows platform with intel i7 quad processor, 16GB of RAM, plenty of hard disk space, etc.  I've created a 487 page document with only one master page for a book so it's a simple document. I'm not using Layers.

On page 463, at the beginning of the page, the cursor appears with its characteristic blinking on and off. At any point thereafter I cannot click to insert a Text cursor. I can click, but nothing happens. No blinking Text cursor at any x,y position thereafter. It's like the cursor is stuck at the beginning of the page.

I've re-booted, saved document with a different filename, exited InDesign and opened it again. Nothing works. It's almost as if the program has run out of memory with too many pages.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
