Hi there, 

I can tell the text is selected when I double-click text inside a text frame, because when I trial deleting it disappears. However, the usual blue highlight of the selcetion does not show up (as it does in previous versions of InDesign, every other Adobe program and InDesign's story editor), which makes things difficult! How can I get those highlights to show? I'm working in the latest version (CC Indesign 15.0.2).

If you think this is an InDesign issue, try rebuilding preferences:

Thanks Barb. I've already tried this. It's not the issue. Since inquing above, I have found that some text frames in the document select text as one might expect, while others still do not. Those that do are typically newly created ones, or ones copy and pasted onto different pages. So, still wanting to know what the issue is.

Hi Stuart,

don't know what your exact issue is, but you could also try the Story Editor Window:

Thanks Uwe, 
Yes, this is how I've been surviving. Its still an awkward work-around, so I'd prefer an actual solution.
