Cannot edit text

Recommended Posts

I have created a simple document with linked text frames and filled it with the filler text.

Added some paragraph settings etc and I now cannot select text elements anymore.

Only the full text.

I can start typing and it will add characters at the start of the text. If I click the right arrow on the keybord to go to the next character position it jumps to the end of the full text.

And if the text is selected it doesn't highlight all text elements (see screenshot.)

Just found the solution for one of the problems here from MikeW: POST

"Right-click in it and choose expand. It's a variable. You can also insert it as text instead of a variable and even add your own text to insert in Preferences.  "

I find that I can't highlight text although I am still effectively selecting and applying changes as normal - it just isn't highlighting the text to which the changes are to be made.  Nor can I see the cursor - again I can place it and move it as normal.  I just can't see it.
