I am 80% through my document creation. New to In Design with a CS5.5 version already installed.... my cursor stopped creating text boxes.... will just draw a box with dotted lines that immediately dissppears. THEN it converted my screen to a 'view' screen.... no panels or other works...and a hand cursor... HELP!

The Tab will hide and show the interface. Try pressing Tab and see if the panels come back. You can also reset the workspace using Window > Workspace > Reset XXX where XXX matches your preferred workspace name. If you are simply in a full screen view, click in the margin, outside of all frames and tap the letter W.

What operating system are you using, exactly? CS5 is not supported on modern operating systems, so you may be running into some trouble trying to run it on Windows 10 or recent Mac operating systems.

I agree with Barb, your version of InDesign is nearly 10 years old -- you should definitely consider upgrading to InDesign 2019/2020, assuming you have the correct system spec.
