Ever since the new install of INDD 2021, I am no longer able to move anything with the mouse.

 

  • Mouse works in every other function on my computer - just not moving objects, text boxes (or anything at all) in INDD 2021.
  • Nothing is locked. This happens on new documents. This happens on old documents.
  • I am not on the master pages. I am on the live page - unlocked all objects on spread. Still won't move.
  • Start a new document - add something - don't lock it -- still can't move anything with the mouse.
  • I can select things with the mouse. Still can't drag anything with the mouse.

 

Anyone know how to fix this in INDD 2021? I'm on a PC (boo!). Please help. Everything worked fine 3 days ago, on the old INDD.

I have solved this, check on your master pages for this item. This is where I found the item that I couldn't select.
