Yesterday I was working on a document and tried nudging the box using the arrow keys. It didn't work. It is really weird. The selected box flickers with each keystroke, but nothing moves.
I restarted Indesign and it started working again.
This morning I opened the same document. Problem reappears. I restart Indesign, problem is still happening.
I created a new document, thinking the original might have been corrupted. Nope, still can't nudge.
My arrow keys work correctly, my keyboard is connected. My layers and objects are unlocked.
My Indesign is 2017, build 184.108.40.206
One thing I did do yesterday was install a script. However, looking over the script I don't see anything that would obviously cause the nudge problem. InDesign: Resize Document Window? - Lena Shore
I would do the following, in this order:
So, somehow the same problem happened to my co-worker. Weird. But another co-worker had the solution.
Somehow the Keyboard Cursor Increment field in Preferences was set to 0. How did that happen?
We did find out why this was happening, but not yet how this happened. I will go ahead and see if the preferences are the problem. or the script.
That is so interesting! Resetting prefs would have restored that, but I've never seen that happen all by itself. Is your co-worker using the same script?
Can't thank you enough for posting this answer, mauphie77. It was my problem, exactly, and was driving me crazy. I also have no idea how the settings were changed, but am relieved to have found a solve.
Thanks mauphie77! Nailed it.
Over 20 years using photoshop, Most spooky and annyoing thing to ever happen to me using this software.
My new version of Photoshop CC2021 is having the same issue - it's driving me nuts!
Add to that the glitch with the color selection tool freezing the whole software and I'm seriously annoyed at Adobe for releasing this version with such obvious issues.
I had similar issues but with the CC libraries. Every time i opened them it would freeze everything. I uninstalled and reinstalled the progam twice, along with a full shutdown and it still kept freezing. SOMEHOW it just magically stopped freezing after multiple shutdowns.
