I receive a document from a client. I am trying to add a text box on the paste board to type information. Everytime i draw a text box it snaps and but the text box on the page and then says everything is over set. I have never seen this. I am guessing it is some kind of setting but i can't find it.

 

Please help, this is very annoying.

 

thank you

Hi Kathy,

I guess there is an object style selected by default that sets a fixed position and maybe also a certain width and height of a text frame. So before doing a new text frame check your Object Styles panel. If you cannot see a custom object style inspect the properties for the default style that has that little [T] icon attached to in the panel.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

I see that there is an object style applied to the complete document. I can draw a box now. But now i am trying to copy a grouped picture with text boxes. When i paste that in the document even with none selected it placed the grouped picture with two text boxes in a box that matches the page guides.
