I'm using InDesign 15.0.03. I had to delete my preferences to correct another issue and since doing that, my cursor will not work in the pages panel. I cannot grab and drag a master page down to create a new page, nor can I move pages around even with the "allow to shuffle" unchecked. I have deleted the preferences again, tried multiple documents, restarted InDesign, restarted Windows explorer and made sure everything is up to date. Very frustrating! Any help is appreciated.
Try trashing the cache once and see if it helps
Thank you for your suggestion. I tried that and it didn't work.
Does the problem happen with a new document? Could you clarify which folder did you trashed to clear your cache?
It did happen with a new document, but I think I have it solved! I trashed the cache by holding down Ctrl-Alt-Shift on startup. I checked again with existing doc and with new doc, even a different existing doc and the problem persisted. Then I noticed it happening with graphics and text boxes, too (this was new). So I started the process again.
I trashed the prefs, restarted Windows Explorer and finally restarted the machine completely. This finally worked!
I think the path to the caches folder on Windows is:
On OSX it is:
/Users/username/Library/Caches/Adobe InDesign/Version #
UI problems usually are from corrupted caches
Thank you for your help!
