Hello:

I have the same problem when I follow this steps:

1. Make a text box.

2. Make a second text box and nest it to the first one with image.png.50c7bbb723c7917442d5626923f2a0a8.png.

3. Try to select the second one (the nested) to write. It doesn't select.

Thanks.

I'm not sure what that icon is, or what it does.

The second one seems to be selected in your screenshot.

It might help if we saw a screenshot with the layers expanded in the Layers panel. It would definitely help to have a sample .afpub file so we could look at it ourselves.

This is the icon of align an item into the paragraph instead of floating. image.png.cb1c8305f92357e416f8c89cca4995f1.png

Here you have the screenshot. It´s easy to do, only 2 text boxes and press the icon.

You can select the child text box, but you cannot write into it until you use the text tool. This is inconsistent with the way you select a non-child text box.

 

Thanks.
